I am a teacher and editor with an English Degree. I am an active personal essay, fiction, and poetry writer. I value the process of picking the perfect words to create the perfect image and to have the intended effect on the audience. Conveyance and attention to the right details can make all the difference in a successful piece of work, story, or document. I occasionally submit essays, articles, or poems to magazines. Some of my work coincides with travel I do, either in topic or style, but I aim to make those appropriate for the purpose of the piece.
