i've been working on "she's so very..." since 2000, but didn't publish an issue until the summer of 2002. i recently printed up my 11th issue and am working on number 12 and other projects. i've also published one mini zine titled "be bubbly in public!"
"she's so very..." is a perzine, i write about all aspects of my life, including but not limited to: love, loss, obsessions, mental health, abortion, rape, sexuality, pornography, being boy crazy, pop culture - especially music and television shows and have started branching out into interviews as well.
i live in bloomington, indiana and i work at a community mental health center with adults who are chronically and seriously mentally ill; i help them manage all aspects of their lives, depending on their specific needs. i was the singer for JERK ALERT! but have no musical projects on the horizon at this time, although i hope that a drum set will be in my future! i also recently purchased some turntables and will finally be able to DJ freely around bloomington.

Every issue of "she's so very..." deals with my life and often follows along in a diary like format. I continue in issue 12 with recurrent themes of sexuality, relationships, pregnancy fear and body image. I also write about the release of an LP, the death of JERK ALERT and our last tour; trying new things and planning for the future; building strong friendships and letting go of crappy friends; and of course my many celebrity and pop culture obsessions, including my discovery of Twilight, seeing the Toadies and Margaret Cho in the same weekend. I've also included an interview I did with Le Tigre back in 2000!pay via paypal for $1.35
