Dear visitors,

Allow me introduce myself—my name is Axel and I'm a transgender male in California who transitioned at age 50. I've always been passionate about social justice, representation, and visibility, having come out in the Act-Up world and also having been denied becoming a Rabbi, simply because I am queer. 

And, I've continued to get back up and try again but, darn if it isn't getting harder. So, I'm trying to figure out how to make a living doing what I love most: supporting others and creating graphics. :)

I look forward to this next adventure and hope you'll come along on the ride with me as I work to build self-confidence and to spread kindness to others. 

With much appreciation...wishing you kindness.

Respect! Axel
