About

I'm a serious artist with a serious dream: to take a photo of myself on a pile of your money. Watch this brief (under 2 minutes!) video to learn more. Or you could just buy my new novel, GREAT, an updated take on Gatsby with two teen girls in love/obsession. Whatever. Either way, I just feel like we're closer now.

But for real. This pile of money. Do you even know what $5000 looks like? Neither do I. Let's do this, world.

Risks and challenges

There are very few risks associated with this process, other than the risk that Instagram gets shut down so you cannot see an Instagram photo of me atop a pile of your money.

There is also the risk that you will think this is a joke. This is not a joke. This is an art project. It is about money and life and the nature of fundraising and kickstarting and also love, of course.
