ABOUT ME

Since I was a child, I would shy away from the limelight and find great comfort behind a pen and pad, telling stories. The
craft of writing is something that I have always been passionate about and today it has become a skill I have been perfecting for nearly two decades of my life.

I believe that everyone has a story to tell and in turn, I love listening to those stories, attempting to paint a picture to my readers with my words. I may not be an artist or painter, but I believe words can create powerful images in ones mind and it is how we share our stories with others.

I’ve been a jouralist for nearly a decade now and in that time, I have published over 1000 articles ranging from sports to social journalism. I believe stories are everywhere and want to seek them out through writing & journalism.
