I’m a professional historian of alcohol and a gratefully recovering alcoholic. I also have an anxiety disorder, and I fight every day to #EndTheStigma surrounding mental health. All my writing, all my music, and even my scholarly work aims toward a single star: hope.
Whatever you’ve been through, wherever you are, there is hope. I’ve been sober since 2016 and have been blessed with amazingly positive changes in my life since then. I’ve worked hard for them—and prayed hard, too.
I’m so glad you’re here sharing my journey; let’s walk together toward hope! The Sanskrit translation of my signature greeting below is simple, and I mean it with all my heart: The divine in me honors the divine in you.
