I'm still in the midst of running the Queer Halloween Stories Bundle 2022, but I've shot off several emails late last night and this morning and I'm at the point where I already know I could have done things better.

I don't like capitalism but unfortunately people gotta eat and pay rent, so I do my best to put food on the table.

I'm inspired by cool folks like Victoria Tran, who is currently with InnerSloth (Among Us), and Arimia of Crystal Game Works (A Pinch of Magic, Crimson Waves on the Emerald Sea, etc.).
