Stalking/Poisoning Survivor

  I've always been willing to explore the ugly, honest side of life through my work, and after surviving my own real-life horror movie, my passion for curating and preserving real-life experiences has only intensified. 

I'm a Gen X'er who lived through the Satanic Panic era of the '80s and a stalking ordeal spanning over three decades. All of which nearly cost me my life. I started Waxing Blue as a professional design, writing, and ghostwriting service specializing in unique content and biographies. However, recently, I ventured into the magazine publishing space with Derailed Magazine.

Launched in January of 2021, the project is Waxing Blue's

first publication. Visit www.DerailedMagazine.com 

  I reside in the Mojave desert of southern California with my partner, David, and our two bulldog sons, Pendleton & King.

I'm an avid DIY'er, a music connoisseur, and a budding screenwriter. Have something to say? Shoot me an email

“Stalkers have an obsessive over-identification with their unwilling target but also a latent envy of their talents and/or beauty, If they can't possess the person totally, they will destroy the victim's qualities that they can never have.”
