Autobiographical work

Much of my work is autobiographical. I write to find out things I didn’t know about myself. And mostly, to get closer to the reader while creating more distance. My autobiographical publications are a reflection of my personal journey of self-discovery, development and exploration. I delve into my inner dialogues and struggles. Themes of isolation, solitude, reflection, escapism, and mental health are common in my work.
