For nearly two decades, I have written my mind and heart out about mental health, trauma, addiction, and suicide as matters of social justice.  

I’m a political correspondent with Mad in America, writing at the intersection of mental health, politics, and technology.

In my writing, I critique the Western "medical model" of mental health that seeks to pathologize our pain rather than to validate it.

I also hope to offer some solutions and alternatives to the status quo, understanding there is no one-size-fits-all to personal and collective liberation.

With my words, I seek to navigate and illuminate pathways to reclamation and survival in an unjust, burning world.
