Following #MeToo, a #MeFIRST Framework for 2018

In 2009, at the age of 20, I was raped and beaten—nearly left for dead, by a stranger who helped me change my flat tire. Thanks to: an amazing roommate who (despite my hesitation) put me in her car and took me to the hospital, a sex crimes detective and attorney who were determined to […]

The need for conversations on masculinity.

For me, masculinity has always been an interesting concept. I grew up in a military family surrounded by what some might consider ideologies of “traditional” masculinity.

Hear. Me. Roar!

At age 20-something, I was assaulted on the street one night outside of my New York City apartment. Thankfully, I was able to scare him off before he got a strong hold on me. The scarier part came in the days to follow when I asked myself all of the “what if” questions that could […]

Whenever I […]
