Hello, friends!

My name is Jeff, and I'm a big ol' gay writer, Twitch streamer, and video game enthusiast with a passion for storytelling. I'm especially passionate about creative nonfiction/memoir style pieces, character-driven narratives, and queer literature.

My goal with my stories is to represent the LGBTQIA+ community in the way that I would have wanted to see growing up, and the way I hope we can be seen, eventually. My stories always include queer characters, because I am very passionate about how powerful representation can be.

I also enjoy yoga, a good-quality latte, dogs, TV show binge-watching, drag shows, farmer's markets, finding new restaurants, and cooking/baking!

Thank you for stopping by, and I hope you enjoy the stories I have for you!
