Aging Imperfectly

f*ck age appropriate.

Start Here

This blog is for those of us who don't resemble what it means to be traditionally whatever age we are right now. 

Whether it's never giving up your Dr. Martens and blue hair or deciding to have kids later in life or not at all, we're aging and doing so, imperfectly.


If there was one word to describe you, what would it be? For myself at this very moment, I'd use the word unconventional.

I'd also use the words curious, misunderstood, ambitious, and offbeat.

Perhaps you're like me. Or maybe not, but one thing that we have in common is that we're tired of being treated as if we have one foot in the grave.

We are redefining what it means to be older than 35 in this youth-obsessed society. 

We are showing the world what it's like to show up and be yourself, flaws, wrinkles, experiences and all. We possess a vast body of knowledge, most of us having changed careers many times.

Maybe we don't know what we want to be when we grow up. Or maybe that's just me?


The reality that 1980 was almost 40 years ago still astounds me. I remember what I was doing then but perhaps not consecutively. What were YOU doing in 1980?

Since you're here right now, something tells me that you're a little weary. Are you finding it hard to make new friends as a so-called adult? Me too!

Maybe it's because you're not ready to take any more sh*t from the people that are already in your life. Maybe some people are on the way out. Maybe you're doing your best to "detach with love".

Around here, I have a few core beliefs....

  • I believe that you're ready for a big change, but perhaps you're not entirely sure how it's all going to play out.

  • I believe that you're fed up with (thinly veiled or not) age discrimination, especially on the job, gig, and employment fronts.

  • I believe that you deserve happiness, love, and respect. It took a long time for me to realize that myself, and I've made a LOT of mistakes along the way

  • I believe that you're ready to take your life to the next level, and that you appreciate the time you've had so far but that something's missing...
