Growing up in Southern California, surrounded by beautiful people, I struggled to find my identity. Every one else seemed to know who I was supposed to be, and how I was supposed to act, but their Idea of who I was didn’t quite fit with how I felt inside. I knew I was just different somehow. Expressing my true self came with criticism which caused me to question myself, and so began my search to find myself and the life I wanted to lead. Years of taking risks, enduring judgments, and self-doubt taught me that to be truly happy meant rejecting mainstream society’s idea of who I was supposed to be and what I was supposed to believe. 

Somehow through all this, I have found the courage to show who I really am to the world. I hope to help lead others down the path to their own self-acceptance. My mission now is to help people live their best lives without the need to please other people who may be miserable in their own. Whether it be discarding dilapidated belief systems, unrealistic ideals, or simply the fear of judgment, finding the courage to be yourself can be daunting. By sharing my stories, I hope to show that you are ultimately in control of your own life, and that you alone have the power to control your own happiness. I hope to provide that little nudge you may need to tell the world to kiss your butt, because you are awesome just the way you are. 


Why I Wrote Expose Yourself

Most of us grow up with ideas of what and who we want to be told to us through TV, parents, movies, and the belief systems we are born into. We are taught that taking risks is reckless, asking too many questions is rude, and that we may need to hide who we really are to find acceptance in the world. As a stripper for 20 years, I learned a lot about why hanging on to those ideas can make for an unfulfilling and ultimately boring life. When we give in to the idea of what society and media tells us who we should be, we forget who we really are inside. We learn to go with the flow and develop cognitive biases that limit our learning and perspective. Sometimes those biases lead us to believe everything we read or hear that validates what we want to believe.

Expose Yourself is a guide to questioning those beliefs to help uncover your own truth about who you are and what is important to you. It is also a guide to help identify where your cognitive biases may be leading you astray. In a world where information is just a search or a click away misinformation and pseudoscience is running rampant my book seeks to teach the reader through humor and stories from my career how to avoid being taken in by clever cons. While it may seem that a former stripper is an unlikely voice of reason, my job has given me a unique perspective on life and science that makes learning a little more fun.
