An advocate native to Montana, I work within the LGBTQ community and homeless youth population. Ultimately a writer at heart, I hope to one day build up my life around my words while simultaneously using the opportunity to tear down other’s notions on what that life is. ‘Caught Under Glass’ is the first step along that path, composed of posts to make readers question what they’ve wrongly accepted as fact or to simply offer a thoughtful, entertaining commentary on situations or ideas rarely touched in our society.”
