About Me

I seek to help and be of value in any way that I can. In particular, if I have a specific skill set that someone can value, I especially enjoy fostering these symbiotic partnerships.

I have been a creative individual all of my life. I enjoy writing, learning, and growing. I enjoy examining the follies of mankind in cerebral and often humorous ways. That said, I'm also skilled in writing formal pieces for businesses and website copy. I have a knack for highlighting emotional triggers and can use that target an audience's needs. I tend to only work with companies whose business model/practice I agree with, so using my empathic powers for devious means is not something I am willing to do. 

Please send me a message and let me know if you think we can work together.

Why Meditation Will Make You A Better Person

Many people have misconceptions about meditation. While it is associated with Indian spirituality, it is not akin to witchcraft (nor is it inherently religious). Being able to simply sit still with your own mind will increase your intuition, empathy, and compassion while giving you a sense of peace that you can use to face the many (...many) challenges of life.
