I'm a queer, nonbinary, multiply-disabled creative in my late 20's. I mainly make art and YouTube videos at the moment, but I have edited for Salty World Magazine, written for numerous indie publishers, and performed on stage. I like trying new things and facing new challenges, especially if I am surrounded by a supportive team! I am autistic! Please be direct with me! :) I'm a Libra sun and moon, Cancer rising, Scorpio stellium and a Leo mars (which might explain some things for my astro gays)

What was the last piece of media that made you cry?

I've been watching Nashville with my mum, we are nearing the end of season 5 where this MASSIVE plot point happens which actually surprised me (which is rare) but it was when little 13 year old Daphne called her stepdad Deacon 'dad' for the first time... it was just the sweetest moment and I was a mess.

What’s your favourite video game?

I can't pick one, but I have to say the old school Sims console spin offs were SO GOOD? Sims Bustin' Out, the Urbs, the Sims 2 on PSP?? What happened to that era? Bring her back!

Have you ever heard a song that feels like it HAD to be written about you? What was it and why?

My answers are so Libra and autistic because I love so many things so deeply it is just so hard to choose! But the first song that came to mind was Halsey's Bad at Love from Hopeless Fountain Kingdom, if you listen or check out the lyrics... it is pretty self explanatory. A lot of Halsey's work has this effect on me. Halsey is literally days older than me. She is bisexual and has bipolar which has driven a lot of her work and really spoke to my experience of BPD and my queerness. They have also recently had other diagnoses like EDS, MCAS, POTS and Sjogren's syndrome (much of these I also have, or am trying to pursue the diagnosis of) I don't listen to whole albums so much anymore, but I always go back to Halsey's work because they make these epic pieces of work through concept albums, telling a broader story through the songs... I just love to see what she comes out with.
