About Us

“Our lives might become a protracted mourning for, or an endless tantrum about, the lives we were unable to live. But the exemptions we suffer, whether forced or chosen, make us who we are.”

– Adam Phillips, Missing Out: In Praise of the Unlived Life

 

At Two Stories Tall, we believe that everyone has at least one tale to tell, and we are dedicated to bringing as many of those to light as possible.

 

Never before has seeing the world through an undistorted lens (to the degree that this is possible) been so important. In a time dominated by sensationalist reporting, click-bait headlines, and the aggressive and outright promotion of misinformation, learning about that ever-terrifying person, ‘the other,’ in a clear, straightforward manner is key.

 

It is our hope that these real life portraits of people with which we share the planet not only inform and entertain, but also do their part in lessening the gap that senseless political ideologies, nativism, sexism, and prejudice too often place between us.

So, grab some coffee, click around, and get to know someone.

We hope you enjoy the stories.
