I use stories to help young adults feel less alone as they make the transition to independent, fulfilling, and most of all, authentic lives. I use my past to create fictional stories that inspire and support people. I also coach individuals to help them become their best selves as well as offering trainings for organizations and groups to help them understand the issues transgender people, people with Autism, and others may face and how their groups can become more inclusive.
Prior to embracing my identity as a transgender man, my adult life was a dramatic quest to figure out who I was and how I was supposed to function in this world. I struggled with depression, got into several unhealthy relationships, and found it difficult to become independent the way I wanted.
A lot of my pain stemmed from not having the language to know who or what I was as a child and not embracing my identity as an adult. That’s why I’m dedicated to making a difference for other people who feel alienated and alone.
