The American Oversight

For years now you have heard me preach the importance of children’s rights, and lately you’ve heard me get a little bit louder. Chances are, that won’t be changing anytime soon. Vocal holds regular writing competitions and when the opportunity to enter a challenge titled (Un)Common Knowledge presented itself, I had to present the current most important political fact I know: The United States is the only country in the world not yet to have ratified the Convention on the Rights of the Child. Check out the full article here. Continue reading The American Oversight

Hear Me Roar: International Women’s Day 2021

Today is International Women’s Day 2021, an important day for recognizing women everywhere across all socially constructed divisions and arbitrarily decided upon lines. On this day it is important that we reflect on who women are and why we recognize our gender on this day. Being a woman is increasingly understood as an identity and not necessarily a gender assignment upon birth. While yes, anatomically, if you are assigned a certain body at conception by nature then you will most likely fall into the category of being female, however you may also grow to identify as a woman with time, … Continue reading Hear Me Roar: International Women’s Day 2021

Cali Sunshine & Rain

I wrote a short story that means so much to me, possibly more than anything else I have written in a while. I submitted the story as a part of The Little Black Book Challenge by Vocal and Moleskine where the winner wins a grand total of $20,000! The guidelines for the submission were to write a fiction piece that somehow includes someone coming into $20,000 and also incorporating a “little black book” into the narrative. I chose to write about something close to my heart. Please read the story, it is a heartfelt and deep tale of Cali Sushine … Continue reading Cali Sunshine & Rain

Exhibit A Released 5 Years Ago Today

The amount of courage that it takes to be able to even get to the moment where you are standing in front of a microphone in the recording studio can feel insurmountable. At least it did for me. I will never forget recording this song. I really wanted for the engineer to care about what we were creating. This was not only going to be my first single but the song touches on the very sensitive topic of when my friends and former classmates died in an avalanche on a school trip. Obviously it was a large task to ask … Continue reading Exhibit A Released 5 Years Ago Today

Daniel, You’re My Best Friend

I see you in heaven, seeing me working my ass off and yet still flirting with making mistakes. I hear your voice in the background, “he’s a chump, move on.” You said it so many times, I don’t even remember who we were talking about now. To you, they were all chumps. That’s cause you never let me down. You always supported me and had faith in my decision making abilities. You called me “the smart one,” and you were no doubt the funnier of us two. It’s incredible how even in death, 18 years later, you can make me … Continue reading Daniel, You’re My Best Friend
