About: My Story

Writing saved my life. I was 16 years old, and introduced to letter writing and journaling by my therapist at the time. I was unable to communicate the traumas I'd experienced up to that time and doc thought this may be an avenue worth exploring.

Little did I know at the time that despite my clear and present struggle with language and the formation of anything sensical, that this act of putting pen to paper would become an avenue of exploration, expression, and consequently, a means to a life worth living.

Hello! I'm Shanna, and I'm thrilled to welcome you to my corner of the internet.

Stay curious
and explore

My mission is simple: Through writing, to help you find more joy, be more curious, and see your given potential and the available opportunities of the digital economy to create a life of freedom, autonomy, and fulfillment.

My life has been a clear testament to the power of curiosity, the written word, and the online economy.

I hope to be your guide and ally in navigating this evolving digital and real world landscape. Whether you're looking to break free from a conventional role, get out and explore the world, or simply carve out a more intentional way of living through philosophy and poetry, this space is for you.

I'm passionate about many things. Writing, philosophy, human potential, core principles, and the Future of Work are a few. I've seen my own life changed by staying curious, finding joy in simple things, putting pen to paper, challenging limiting beliefs, the application of fundamentals, and recognizing the potential of the digital realm to change lives. I'd like to help others like me that have lived through challenges - in whatever form - achieve true freedom and autonomy.
