I am a poet and freelance writer living in Fairborn, Ohio. I grew up in a small town in southeastern Ohio, near the Ohio River. I have always been a writer--I wrote my first poem at the age of ten, and I've been writing ever since, whether it is poetry, short stories, creative essays, magazine articles, blog posts, or just writing in my personal journal. Each piece I write has a little piece of me in it somewhere. A chronological view of my poetry provides a window into the emotional roller-coaster that has been my life.
When I'm not writing, I enjoy reading, listening to music, watching movies, and spending time with family and friends.
