About Me

Hey! I’m Abe (or Abraham if you feel like being fancy). I’m a 32 year old queer trans man. I had my first pen pal when I was 4 years old and as email and online messaging took over most communications, I’ve missed seeing something fun in my mailbox!

I live with my partner (Sav) and our pet hamster, Charles Lincoln Neal V (points to you if you know who he’s named after). I studied English/Creative Writing in college and write some poetry myself, but haven’t really settled on a career path just yet. For now I do a lot of dogsitting, landscaping, and other odd jobs.

I’m a pretty crafty person and between my partner and I, we do a little bit of everything. Our apartment is small but we have an entire dresser dedicated to keeping all of our crafty bits and bobs. We both love sculpy and paper crafts. Sav is more into cooking than I am, but recently I’ve been trying out cake decorating!


I mark my swaps sent as soon as they are dropped in the box, which means sometimes it won’t be postmarked until the next day. But if you don’t receive your swap PLEASE message me. I have no problem resending if something gets lost or horribly damaged in the mail. I never want my swap partners to miss out on the happy in their mailbox! Also, because of health and transportation concerns I may be a day late with sending things out now and then. Though I will always try my hardest and will ALWAYS message you if something will be sent late.


If anyone would like to do a private swap or penpal on a consistent basis, shoot me a message! I’m always down for more happy in my mailbox!

Favorite Movies and TV


I LOVE Marvel movies (a bit of a comic book geek). Iron Man if my favorite. And really I’ll watch anything with Robert Downey Jr. in it. The Sixth Sense is still one of my favorites of all time. The Harry Potter series, of course. I also love old Hugh Grant movies (Notting Hill, About A Boy, and such). To Kill a Mockingbird. Little Miss Sunshine. Leaves of Grass. The Cat From Outerspace. Martian Child. Perks of Being a Wallflower.


Supernatural. Sherlock. Avatar: The Last Airbender. The Office. Parks and Rec. Schitt’s Creek. Good Omens. Death Note. The Gilmore Girls. Stranger Things. Game of Thrones. Steven Universe. Over the Garden Wall. And most 90s cartoons :)

I also love a good competition show, like Blown Away, The Great British Baking Show, and such. I also watch a lot of home makeover type shows.

Favorite Music

I’ll listen to anything really from John Prine to Weezer. I enjoy checking out new music often, Though my knowledge of hip-hop or rap isn’t very extensive, my partner has been introducing it to me.

Some of my favorites off the top of my head are: Troye Sivan, BTS, Sleeping at Last, Jon Bellion, Tegan and Sara, Linkin Park, Twenty One Pilots, and Panic at the Disco.

Extras I Love

  • decorated envelopes
  • ATCS! - blank or done by you
  • washi tape
  • diecuts
  • paper clips
  • letter paper and blank greeting cards/notecards
  • stickers - sheets, letters, cutouts, and flakes
  • playing cards for washi samples
  • artwork you've done - doodles, photography, handmade cards, and everything in between
  • new, unused stamps
  • coins/paper money

Basically anything but: Used stamps, buttons, dried flowers, heavily scented items, or glitter.

Comment: Thanks for reading my profile and sending such a cute owl note card. The temps are dropping here, but we rarely see snow. Good luck with the DIY Christmas. I'll be recovering my surgery, so I'm anxious of how everything will get done! Thanks for the smiley face note card. Cheers!

Comment: Thank you for such a wonderful letter; I like to keep the letters I receive kind of like a time capsule and I think yours is a really good picture of a queer viewpoint right now, it's a wonderful addition to the timeline I'll leave behind when it's my time to take my final bow. I'm not at all surprised by your love of superheroes, a strong person must stand with strong company! Thank you for thinking of Johnny too, he was thrilled!

Comment: Is it weird that I cried and smiled whilst reading your email? I am seriously an emotional human and reading emails at 1 am doesn't improve the situation. Thank you so much for sending what you did through, honestly, I can't even begin to tell you how much it warmed my heart and made me smile and just can I say I'm proud of you? Sorry if that's weird! But, seriously, just gah, I can't begin to express how your email brightened my week and it just had this awesome vibe! Sorry, I'll stop with the weirdness! You deserve many hearts for this swap, I wish I could give you more than a 5/heart rating! Thank you x a million for sharing what you did! Have a lovely week ^_^
Response: I’m glad you enjoyed the email so much! I don’t know whether to apologize or be honored that it made you cry. Lol
Comment: I always love to receive a first zine! I feel like once you do it you will continue because they are so much fun. Love all the hand drawn illustrations, thanks so much
Response: It’s true! I already signed up for a few more zine swaps :) Glad you enjoyed mine!
Comment: I received your awesome zine today. I loved it! I would have never guessed this was the first zine you made. Great work! Thank you!
Response: Thanks so much! So glad you enjoyed it!
