I first stumbled into BLoFISH - a local clothing store in Louisville, Kentucky - March 2016. I and several friends were having a sushi party across the street when, at 11pm at night, had the grand ole' idea to go play ping pong at the nearby bar and restaurant, Garage Bar. Fast forward a few horrible, horrible games of ping pong later to me standing in this strange gender neutral clothing store where two human beings were sitting on the floor and blasting pop music.
I knew this was the start of something big.
Since that night, I would pop into BLoFISH whenever I was in the neighborhood to see who was around and inevitably, spend more money. A year and a half later, they finally offered me a job.
I've taken on the role of producing a lot of their media with the occasional photoshoot here and there. My most current project with the BLoFISH team is The BLoFISH Speakeasy, a podcast that's put up bi-weekly on Tuesdays. We've created this podcast as a place to tell stories that may not normally have a platform to do so. These include those about sexual assault, trans identities, and homelessness, just to name a few.
