A Little Bit About Me
I grew up believing in the Easter Bunny and Santa Claus. Thinking my Rabbie Blankie had feelings and my stuffed animals could get lonely. The world is not a fairy tale, but it does have magic. Sometimes that magic is so subtle you have to turn your world half-upside-down and squint your eyes to see it, but it is there. Through pain and ugliness, our stories unravel in the way we choose to see them. It’s never quite clear to me why or how things happen and I certainly will not ever pretend to know the answers – to anything.
I truly feel my surroundings when I can talk about them, most of the time it comes through my mouth and directed at the people around me. A great deal of the time I work to get it down on paper, or on keyboard, as it were. I’m pretty sure I get one life and I’m uncertain whether I believe there’s anything that comes after this one. I want to see and do everything I can, I want to understand and explore every nook I can. Along the way I’ll write it down, and it’ll be here for you. I hope you enjoy reading as much as I enjoy writing. Thank you for being here.
What I Do
I’m a writer and a teacher. This site is a collection of my written work going back to 2005 when I was a Junior in college at Arizona State University. Under blogs you’ll see South Africa in 2005, Spain in 2009, and most recently Indie, started in 2014 which is a blog dedicated to independent contractors and millennial workers.
When asked “How do you write?” I invariably answer “one word at a time.”
