A very Banksy Halloween

My BFF had the most brilliant Halloween costume idea this year. "Let's go as the shredded Banksy painting!" he exclaimed as we were brainstorming interesting things that happened in 2018.

Banksy shocked the world when his "Girl with Red Balloon" painting self destructed moments after selling for $1.4 million at Sotheby's in London earlier this month. 

"It appears we just got Banksy-ed," Sotheby's senior director Alex Branczik said in a statement that described the incident as "the first time in auction history that a work of art automatically shredded itself after coming under the hammer."

Oh, Banksy. You're so punk rock!

Introducing... my magazine

Dear Friends, I'm excited to introduce the inaugural issue of the storyteller!

If you've been following my journey for the past half decade then you know how much I've wanted to return to New York to pursue my writing career. (We all know the saying: You can take the girl out of New York but you can't take New York out of the girl...)

So here I am - 28 years after my very first visit, 16 years after returning for the first time and 5 years since making an extended pit stop in Cleveland - back to living, pursuing and striving in the city of my dreams.

In preparation for my homecoming, I began compiling works for my portfolio. "I don't want to do what's expected; so let's go with something fun, something different..." The result: a magazine featuring my love of a good story and a collection of some of my favorite works. 

Job hunting be blessed!

Read the full issue of the storyteller, here.
