Allow me to introduce myself!

I’m Shohreh DAvoodi, and my pronouns are she/THEY.

As a neurodivergent Iranian-American lesbian, I'm no stranger to navigating intersections and margins. I write and create in order to better understand myself, the world that shaped me, and the changes I want to bring about in our culture. The topics I’m most drawn to are queerness and queer community (especially in taboo spaces like the South), self-trust, shifts in perspective, and my personal experiences with being a mixed-race, divorced femme with ADHD who came out “late.”

Past versions of myself have been an oboist (I have a B.A. in Music Performance from U.W. Madison), a lawyer (I graduated summa cum laude with a J.D. from Chicago-Kent College of Law), as well as a small business owner and podcast host. Future versions of myself are TBD, but I'm steadfastly working to bring several novels into the world and I've fully embraced the art of content creation.

I never shy away from bright colors and glitter. I'm a books, tea, and candles kind of queen with a splash of tattoos, an ear for harmonizing, and a desire to soak in the sun. When I'm not working, there’s a good chance you’ll find me anywhere there are dogs. Otherwise, I'm probably in the bath, on the trail, or on the couch watching Drag Race and doing a puzzle with my fiancée. And while I now happily reside in the Denver area, I'll forever be a Texan at heart.
