The story campaign which may have brought you here brings awareness to my journey. Since having the opportunity to step away from my corporate job in October of 2018, I've meditated daily to continue building my portfolio website, travel for storytelling, start a Podcast, wrote three books, and loss 40lbs.
I’m asking for support from everyone; local communities of Portland, individuals who also feel they're on a road less traveled, and from the anxiety and depression I've overcome, I'm asking for support from those who understand it.
Join me in this journey to become a new voice on my path fueling my daily drive.
What Brings Me Here?
The bravery and tenacity to leave a six-figure plus salary job for a childhood dream. And courage to put all finances on the line to fulfill moments of anxiety.
The experience of walking a path which no one guides you is priceless. I’ve come to terms with who I am, what makes me happy, and to accept a past, including people, I don't control.
Through my stories I plan to share in better context my journey to self-fulfillment. Understand why I made 'bad' decisions, why I no longer care, and where my heads at today.
I kicked off this GoFundMe campaign in August 2019 without a plan. After forgiving myself for rushing it, the 44 day story campaign evolved by the words I added each day.
WHAT BOOKS HAVE I WROTE AND WHAT AM I WRITING?
‘AN EYE BETWEEN MY HAIKU ’ is NOW ON AMAZON!
This is book one of a self-publishing creative journaling series. Book one was written over ten days after coming down from the heights of anxiety and depression in the summer of 2019 for not being able to publish the first book I completed. Written out of meditation and free thought, the end provides space for readers to journal in the book as well.

'BOOJ-WAH-ZEE' is about a boy from tribal land in Africa who helps talk a girl out of committing suicide... This is book one of the Divine IX Trilogy. The stories were all developed by me running up hilltops, jogging trails, working out in cold and hot weather conditions, meditation and my personal experience.

I’m also working on a non-fiction relating to Human Cognitive Functional Typology. I won’t be discussing the specifics of this book until later 2020/21. However, in the development of writing I’d be happy to share some content with those who are interested. The book will help people understand the anxiety and depression of those who suffer.

· A day trip to the bay area to run the Golden Gate Bridge. I’ll later publish the poetic story I create in my head on the run. (Not subject to weather)

· Mentor others through anxiety and depression.
· Publish a poetic book in recognition of each donor.

For every donation I receive is a promise that I have another friend, family member, or supporter to look up to. Stranger or not, we experience the same feelings for the better to grow. In my journey of spiritual growth and self-redevelopment, I’ve learned to be all in with my emotions. This includes the emotions I plan to share with complete strangers, bringing together a better world through words for tomorrow's generation.
I’m committed to making myself available to those who care to support!
ALL DONORS, regardless of the amount will be sent a copy of 'BOOJ-JAW-ZEE'.
