Stay in touch.

On May 23, 2023 my first (and given how hard it was, possibly my last) book, FLAWLESS will be available in bookstores! The story is bookended by my arrival and departure from nearly four years living in South Korea, where I confronted feeling both curious and uncomfortable about the relentless images of normative beauty blasted at me at all hours.

I don’t know anything about publishing and have relied on the generosity, experience and wisdom of trusted friends and advisors to even get to this point. This newsletter will contain updates about milestones, parties, behind-the-scenes shenanigans and be a place for us to communicate.

Stay up-to-date

Every new edition of the newsletter goes directly to your inbox.

Thank you for your support, it means more to me than I can express.
