The book is an extended portrait of a life lived out online in honest and poignant details, thoughts and expressions--both high and low--played out on various social media platforms over a tumultuous ten year period. The work documents the seminal people, places and events in Ortega's life during the years 2010-2020. It depicts a new biographical form, in a contemporary literary context, detailing the personal accounts of an emerging artist's career from being a dreamer to a doer and the ensuing chaos and rewards that manifested.
