I’m a freelance and award-winning* writer from St. Louis. From television coverage for Impact Wrestling, to poems and novels in progress – I have big dreams and hope that you’ll join me on this journey.

A note:

I am a writer because I love creating characters, settings and stories that I – and you – can believe in. Whether it’s a bayou boy named Boug, an innovative Brontosaurus named Pato, or a “snow white elephant” named Piph – I want my characters and their stories to capture your minds and your hearts.

Growing up, my Grandma Sarah urged me to become a writer. I resisted at first, but she read my poetry and stories often and her encouragement only grew. When I had little faith, she offered hope.

That hope factors into much of my work, and the stories I create feature – and nurture – optimism and resiliency.

It is my sincere wish that whatever I write – whether it be a blog post or a novel – resonates with someone. I hope that at least one of my characters finds a place in your heart and that someday, all of their stories can be told (I’m looking at you Pixar).
