About

I am a writer based in Berlin, originally from New Zealand. I am married and have two children. I’m queer, polyamorous, and studying sustainable development.

The Fear and the Freedom is about things that scare me, and challenges I make with myself to do things that are terrifying. Some of these things may be not so scary to most people, like living authentically, loving others, or standing up for what you believe in. Other things may be scary to almost everyone, like dealing with depression, moving abroad and leaving everything behind, or trying to raise a child without completely fucking it up.

This blog is me documenting my fears, my experiences challenging those fears, and attempting to live a life of courage.
