I write because it is my reason for being. I am an artist through and through. I have been writing and drawing for as long as I can remember. Along the way I have added singing, acting, dancing, design, and directing to my repertoire of interests and passions. When I became disenchanted with Western story telling, and felt unchallenged intellectually and emotionally, I looked to Anime and Manga for inspiration and have since discovered a whole other world of story telling! I find that non-Western stories tell the dangerous stories that Western society is too lazy and too afraid to tell. I intend to change this!
