The Anti-Newsletter

Newsletters are overdone. Thoughtful public notebooks aren’t.

Throughout this publication, I’m documenting my creative entrepreneurial journey while sharing stories & lessons from along the way.

“Live different” is my approach to life.

It means go out and be creative. Pursue an independent career. Work from 10-3 or 3-10 if you so choose. Travel more than you think you should. Eat the calories. Grow a garden. Touch grass. Take pictures. Dress however. F*** the Joneses.

Essentially, live different.

Don’t conform, create.

All of our paths will look different. I’m sharing mine here, and if you’ve felt alone in your creative journey, this could be the place for you.

Leave a comment, introduce yourself, share what you’re working on, share what you’re struggling with, ask a question, whatever you feel comfortable with - this isn’t a newsletter, it’s one place on the internet where you’ll always feel heard and understood.
