Welcome to my corner of the internet. My name is Calley (they/them). I am a vaguely multi-disciplinary person, making, talking, and living in Ridgewood, Queens.
I currently work as a Digital Communications and Social Media Marketing Coordinator at the School of Visual Arts (SVA), which is a fancy way to say that I spend a lot of time writing things like this online. By night, I am a trauma-informed Tarot reader, creative writer, visual artist, and musician. 🎸
Companies like HBO, Nike, Gucci, and Refinery29 have hired me to provide Extraordinary Tarot readings at parties and events. I have also been consulted by important and cool people as a tarot reader. I grew up playing and loving Tarot and other games which, if you get a reading with me, you'll find at the heart of my practice. I play well with others and sometimes staff readers I love at parties, too.🃏
My writing, marketing, and editorial work spans art, culture, health, and tech, in Hypertext, Juxtaprose, Selfish Magazine, Everyday Health, Brooklyn Vegan, The Chicagoist, Chicago Magazine and elsewhere. I am also working on my first novel - seriously! ✍🏼
I hold an MA from Teachers College, Columbia University where I studied Psychology & Spirituality to support my Tarot work. I also attended a Creative Writing & Fiction BA program at Columbia College Chicago. 🎓
Currently seeking a drummer for my band (Star Card), one more cup of coffee, and a place to lock my bike up. 🚲
