I am a content creator of many mediums, but may be most well-known for my YouTube channel (malararyofsunshine) where I have been regularly posting videos since March of 2009. I currently upload weekly videos that focus on topics ranging from books to beauty and day-in-the-life vlogs.

Outside of my YouTube channel I am a professional makeup artist; specializing in film and runway, a cosplayer, an avid reader, an ice cream a-holic, and I also have a day job as a community coordinator. I am perpetually planning my next Disney trip.

After struggling while planning my own same-sex wedding, infused with nerdy flair, I am also eager to begin creating resources for couples like me who are simply looking for a product range that has bride & bride (or groom & groom!) options available in their offerings. The pickings are slim, y’all. So watch this space! (;

Born and raised in the beautiful, upper-left corner of the Pacific Northwest I am a Washingtonian through and through. I currently reside in Tacoma with my beautiful wife Emily and our three cats, Sage, Koa and Pixel.
