Ask me anything

I am a compulsive blogger, resulting in a random collection of personal artwork, prose, poetry, and quotes. My interests vary greatly, providing something interesting for nearly everyone.

Nobody will protect you from your suffering. You can’t cry it away or eat it away or starve it away or walk it away or punch it away or even therapy it away. It’s just there, and you have to survive it. You have to endure it. You have to live through it and love it and move on and be better for it and run as far as you can in the direction of your best and happiest dreams across the bridge that was built by your own desire to heal.” 
― Cheryl Strayed

Three mock magazine covers I photographed for Catapult.org's International Women's Day viral campaign

I’m enormously proud of the work we did together, and I’m hoping this campaign will help draw attention to important issues women are facing today, such as forced marriage, child slavery, and forced prostitution.

Even in 2014, the rights of women and girls are severely threatened by sex trafficking, slavery, child marriage and other violations around the world. International Women’s Day, observed annually on March 8, continues to spread awareness and garner support — and change — for women across the globe.

Catapult, a crowdfunding site dedicated specifically to the advancement of women and girls, has released a startling new visual campaign in an attempt to make this year’s IWD “more than just a cover story.” The Cover Stories campaign features three mock magazine covers that highlight terrifyingly real human rights issues to push the conversation forward.

The magazines display the grisly names Child Bride, Good Slavekeeping and Thirteen — wordplays on the popular magazines Brides, Good Housekeeping and Seventeen, respectively. Headlines such as "The Wedding You’ll Never Forget But Wish You Could" and "Who Needs a Childhood Anyway?" float next to the young models. The cover of Good Slavekeeping pretends to cater to the human rights violators themselves, adding another dark layer to the already serious campaign.

Thirty-six thousand feet above the Pacific, an eight-year-old version of me sat in the middle aisle seat of a seven-forty-seven bound for Japan. My family planned to land in Japan for a stop-over before transferring to a Philippines-bound flight.

I was never one to sleep…

tides-turn:

We have a fear of facing ourselves. That is the obstacle. Experiencing the innermost core of our existence is very embarrassing to a lot of people. A lot of people turn to something that they hope will liberate them without their having to face themselves. That is impossible. We can’t do that. We…
