my mom’s a minister. my dad wanted me to be a minister’s wife. they put jesus in my name in the hopes that i wouldn’t turn out like i have: an advertiser who shoves crystals in her bra before a presentation.

i grew up in a cornfield nestled between the bible belt and the rust belt. i spent my whole life trying to get out. now, in every new city, i keep hunting for little pieces of home.

if copywriting falls through, my plan is to transform into the suburban housewife of my dreams, forever wandering the aisles of Liminal Target™ and humming to U2.
