Influences: Queer folk musicians (and queer folks in general), the songwriting communities at the Old Town School of Folk Music and the Rocky Mountain Song School, my mental health, and so much more.
Pronouns: they/them/theirs or he/him/his
I’m a writer, musician, and knitter who is also queer, trans, and bipolar. Originally from Minneapolis, I’ve been in Chicago since 2012, where I live with my partner, @fecknom, who is also a knitter and musician.
I've been writing songs off an on for about 20 years, but I've been much more consistent about it in the last five, thanks in large part to songwriting classes at the Old Town School of Folk Music here in Chicago.
I'd be hard-pressed to name a single genre I don't like at least *something* from. Most of what I write is folky, but I enjoy listening to everything from classical music to death metal.
2018 was my first FAWM, and I'm so happy to be back for a second go-round!

Thank you for your message! I sometimes wonder if anyone uses those cards. It means a lot to me that you have enjoyed them. Perhaps I'll be making those expansions later. 😀
Thank you for your kind words on "With All of Your Might", I wasn't too sure of that one.
Thanks for the kind words on "Get Yourself Together".
