Words are my life, reading and writing my passion. I strive to create the kind of stories that I want to read—full of passion, truth, and a little quirkiness. By day, I'm a media specialist at VCU, aiming to improve learning with the aid of technology, and encouraging cultural competence in students. By night, I'm a bartender and sometimes cook at my favorite Richmond dive. And at all times of day, I'm a writer daydreaming about the stories I'd like to tell, and itching to put them to paper.
