Musings from an old soul millennial


Hello, i’m carly.


Welcome to my creative playground.

This is a space for me to work through my thoughts on a variety of topics including existentialism, consciousness, world religion, politics, feminism, relationships, film, and travel. My foremost writing passion is poetry, which you will find here. I love to explore various poetry forms and put my own spin on them.

As a specialist of Strategic Accounts at O’Reilly Media, I work with a variety of compelling and innovative sponsors who exhibit at our Artificial Intelligence and Data-centric conferences worldwide. 

I also love to dive into freelance writing projects on the side. My recent clients include The Bay Bridged, Hearst StoryStudio, and ITVS. 

I have a BA in English (Creative Writing), from Sonoma State University. From 2014-2015, I had the pleasure of leading Zaum Press (SSU's literary magazine), as Senior Editor.

I'm enamored by the beauty of life and find solace in dismantling all that I see and feel. My goal is to convey those feelings through my writing.

Thank you for stopping by!
