Since I started Lightningsavage Photography, I have shot Japanese fashion icons like Akira, Kimura U, and Minori—and brands like Sexpot Revenge, Enchantlic Enchantilly, Bio Politics, and Royal Princess Alice. In 2019 my best friend and I started Kuroshiro Kawaii, a Japanese fashion store based in Houston, TX. I have been writing fiction since I was 8. After publishing my first novels in high school and college, I now write technically for an oilfield service company and maintain a blog about Japanese fashion. I have recently been getting severe chest pains that prevent me from binding on a regular basis, so my need for top surgery has become a bit more urgent. I had a consultation with my doctor, and I was quoted "a little over $9,000" for my surgery. That, plus travel and hotel fees, brings my top surgery goal to about $12,000. My goal is September 2020.
