Bio: I think I was in the 4th grade when I decided I wanted to be a writer. Back then, I thought writing was just that...writing. A verb. Just write. And the more you write the better. It wasn't until my first summer in college that I discovered there were so many facets of writing. I decided that Journalism and Mass Communications would be my major. I soon learned that there's quite a bit of hustle and struggle involved with making decent money at Journalism so I procrastinated. (story of my life) During my procrastination a friend got me on to the poetry and open mic night scene. I started penning poetry. That lead to essays and writing contests. Everything else happened pretty quickly. Winter semester after graduating high school I started a job with a clearing firm, which led me to change my major to Finance. (Bills must be paid) Writing is still a passion. A cash cow it is not but it is a passion. Its a motion of fluidity and growth unlike any other.
