The TeaKD Studio (pronounced Tea, then the letter K, then the letter D, like the acronym TKD for Tae Kwon Do) began as a dream, a catalyst in which I could channel my writing and reach out to the community. My goal is to give voice to the things I’m passionate about, to give voice to others for things they too, are passionate about. I want to inspire and motivate, build confidences, build community, build learning and knowledge. This site represents the hopeful foundation I wish to build my writing upon and speak out on everything from writing and martial arts and teaching, to empowerment, to creativity. It is a place where learning happens, where mistakes happen, where growth never ceases. Welcome, friends, to the Studio.
