The Gentle Rebel Podcast is a weekly podcast for introverts, Highly Sensitive People and anyone who might think of themselves as a creative misfit. The show is dedicated to exploring a variety of themes that help to encourage, inspire, and equip people: those who want to make the world a better place without getting overwhelmed or burned out.

My Goal

My goal is to help you create the impact you were born to make in a noisy, absurd, and often overwhelming world. I am a Highly Sensitive (social) Introvert and have built a portfolio career around my creative pursuits since 2009. I will share with you my experiences as a “Gentle Rebel” in a world that doesn’t seem to stop shouting and assuming weird truths. Week by week I unpack some of the subtle and absurd challenges that we face when we choose to live differently and challenge the status quo.

My Hope

My hope is that it will help you find your voice, create your purpose, and live with passion so that you can flourish as the Gentle Rebel you were born to be, trekking your own as yet untrodden path.
