Social Media Break (continued)

I've taken a long break from social media over the past few months.  Uninstalled Twitter and Facebook from my phone.  I was emotionally drained after the chaos at the end of last year.  Couple that with major surgery for my…

From Zero to 5k

Over the course of about two weeks, I went from having dozens of listeners to over 5K streams on Spotify, including over 4K unique people spanning seven different countries.  Those numbers may be nothing to big time, label-backed artists, but…

Dr. Christine Blasey Ford

I know this has been a tough week for many of us.  Dr. Blasey Ford's testimony and the subsequent dismissal has enraged me and made me feel powerless.  But the stories she and other survivors have told have also helped…
