About Me


To write a book that gets turned into a movie that is directed by Joss Whedon.


Well, I went and got my degree in Creative Writing and then floundered for a bit wondering what to do with my life. Got a job, hated it, decided I needed to travel, spent about three months traveling. Haven't traveled much lately but would love to meet up with anyone for a drink or chat.


It is what it is.

I can sum up all I've learned about life in three words: it goes on.

No regrets.

Be the change you want to see in the world.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I quit my job to travel. Most amazing thing ever.

Teach, Learn, Share

English grammar (studied creative writing in college). I studied Japanese for a couple of years in college, might be nice to get back into learning it. I love history but don't know nearly as much as I'd like to. Cooking vegetarian meals (I don't know too many but I do know some and would like to learn more).
