RESUME

 
Overview

Writing has been a passion my entire life. Along the way I've had several corporate gigs, and those positions taught and cultivated skills that now allow me to be a better interviewer, negotiator, creator and overall better full-time freelance writer. I want my writing career to always push me to keep my curiosity sharp so I can keep writing entertaining stories.
