In September 2014, PropertyofZack -- a Philly-based punk music blog -- agreed to publish an op-ed piece I had written about growing up in a music scene while having a disability. The reception was unlike anything my writing had ever been given.
PropertyofZack ceased operations in August 2015. It was an incredible stepping stone to finding my voice for a new, larger audience.
On September 3, 2014, an op-ed I wrote called "Don't Let Me Cave In: The Music Scene As Seen Through Cerebral Palsy" was published. The response, shared with musicians, industry writers and others with disabilities, was earth-shattering. This piece was cited as the reason I was asked to freelance for Alternative Press.
NOT THE END. AT LEAST NOT YET.
From January 2015 to August 2015, I wrote Re-done, a monthly column expanding on my life with cerebral palsy and it intertwined with a constant, deep love and appreciation for the site's target soundtrack. I submitted ten thousands-word pieces, to be compiled in a volume at a later date with brand-new material.
