I’m Dillan.

I share stories about identity and resilience.

I’ve been learning how to improve my health since my teens when I struggled with disordered eating. I also embraced personal development in my early 20s and began studying Buddhism as well.

In my mid-30s, after several career changes and geographical moves, I transitioned my gender identity and subsequently experienced profound trauma from loss.

As I navigated my way through grief and survival, I learned a lot about identity and resilience.

And I share stories of all I’ve learned in my writing and speaking.

I look forward to sharing them with you.
