Pardon Our Mess We are huge fans of ISSUU.com! During the final rounds of editing we can publish a section on ISSUU and while proofing our pages we can also edit how it all "feeeeeels" . Awesome right!? We thought so too. So, expect unfinished pages, or incomplete sections while we go about dotting our T' and lower case j's. Our portfolio is light by design. If it doesn't make significatnt contributions to our audience and we don't think we can execute perfectly, then we won't touch it. We want our prints on the elevated endevours.

hat future generations will picture when thinking of an "addict" is changing. Just as I, a proud 80s baby, conjure images of biker gans, pale faces and sunken cheeks, strung out strippers with needles in their arms, or someone living in a dark alley behind the dumpster. (Which is far from accurate) Growing populations of middle to upper income white, latino and black youth from unlikely communites are lending their demographic DNA to the "addict" portrait. Rather than your old school needle junkie, these newcomers started on pills before going broke and making the switch to Black ‌And you thought junkies never got makeovers. The Self-Help genre is terribly uninspiring and unimpressive. It is saturated with literature using the same tired format. Memoirs of addicts, PhD's for days, 12 Step based structure, or some combonation of those. Self Help literature is ripe to undergo a refresh, shake up. Or perhaps an injection of influence from another bolder, popular catergory. Addicts and their loved ones deserve content that has evolvled to meet their standards and styles. The hope in writing FUNCTIONING is modest progress. To open the door for something better. My heart tells me this is the right direction and time.

Thank you.

Brain in Brief

The most complex machine in the known Universe exsists atop your neck. But humans have a very unique make and model as far as brains go. Unlike every other lifeform our brain is able to reason, communicate thought, and be self aware. Adding chemmiicals to this equations severly modify these traits over time.
