Our future is up to us.

Transcend illusion.
Expand the possible.
Dream a better world into being.

Thank you for supporting independent writers and fellow truth-seekers! Together we are supporting the open exchange of ideas, free from censorship and corporate influence.

THE FREE BIRD is a platform for the curious and courageous to challenge the status quo, cultivate higher perspectives, and inspire positive change, starting with our own lives. It exists above rigid political ideologies and religious dogma, recognizing that common ground can be forged with anyone with the call of freedom in their hearts. THE FREE BIRD celebrates the revolutionary power of individuals to choose a new path for themselves and for humanity, based on peace, respect, and autonomy for all.

I am a writer, researcher, and explorer in love with all that is beautiful and free. My goal is to stimulate curiosity and personal expansion through compelling communication, the exchange of new ideas and perspectives, and the asking of provocative questions. I do this to shine a light on the forces that seek to subjugate us through fear and control, so that we can choose a brighter future. If even one of you leaves this site more informed and feeling more empowered, creative, and emboldened, I will deem it a success. I appreciate your willingness to think critically, ask probing questions, and open your minds to different perspectives. In making up our own minds, we claim our sovereignty.

My work is entirely reader-supported so that I can speak freely on what matters most. If you have liked what you see here, please consider sharing it, signing up for my newsletter, or making a one-time donation to help cover my costs. You can also follow me on Medium and Twitter (at least for the time being!). I greatly appreciate your support.

Thank you for being here!
