Still here! Updates from 2020! Jumping-off Links!

Hey Everyone, haven’t used my Medium page in a while, but I did want to give a bit of an update since this is still part of my broader —
✧・゚: *✧・゚:* DIGITAL PRESENCE *:・゚✧*:・゚✧

I still want to keep this page available for longer-form higher-stakes publishing, but do feel that the Medium platform is a little bit heavier, a place for corporate blogs and well-researched theses. I will come back here eventually for the big stuff, when the time comes.

So with that in mind, for the smaller stuff, last year I actually started a personal Substack — as…
