About The Author

Elliott Gladwin

I am in my twenty-ninth year of life. A whimsical wanderer, though I feel homeless everywhere I go. A self-proclaimed "lost boy." A seeker of Truth. I am an artist, designer, creator, and maker. Graphic designer by trade though I enjoy creativity in all its forms. I am extremely sensitive and blessed with the curse of feeling all things deeply. Because of this I am prone to depression and crying but also outbursts of joy, laughter, and dancing. I am learning how to love myself. ENFP - Enneagram 4.
