Mike Avey

Dreams are where the mind and soul connect. To act on them is to live in earnest. I could tell you a little bit more about me, but what's more important here is the overwhelming support I've received from friends, family and loved ones to pursue my craft. I would not be here without their encouragement, full stop. I have a constant stream of empowerment that has lifted me up to be able to do the things I enjoy. They've shown how to function in this world, but also how to be myself all the while. If you appreciate these stories, if something from this makes you feel anything meaningful, please know that it draws from a deep well of experience from those that have looked out for me. I hope you have those in your social web that do this for you, and I sincerely hope you can be that person in someone else's life. Because it makes all the difference, truly. So in conclusion, my name is Mike Avey, I'm from Youngstown, Ohio. I found life in Richmond, Virginia, and I wouldn't be here without those who found me.
