Through a variety of mediums, I have been telling stories for over 15 years with a focus on exploring humanity in my subjects. I am an Iceland Writer’s Retreat Alumni where I ventured into the world of quill and ink only to discover a new journey through the craft of the word.
The inspiring people that I've met along my travels, their strife and successes, passions and pains, and exceptional humanity are the focus of my writings.
It is my hope that I make a moral impact and remind adults of the joy that childlike compassion can bring.

While natural for some, linguistic communication may not come easily to others. Sometimes we forget that between idea and expression lies a chasm of imagination full of wonderous insights. For those who struggle with conventional communication, let us extend our minds to see what they see, feel what they feel, and assure them that their uniqueness is as celebrated as anyone's.
Be kind. Be love.
