About Me

Some people look back at their earlier years and say "I was a shy kid." Or "I was really outgoing and silly." I was a reader. My nose always in a book, and when it wasn't, the pen was to the paper. My love for literature is something I consider a trait, like handedness. 

I have a passion for all types of literary genres. Being the writer is a whole other challenge, and I love it. I am writing a book of my own which will be completed by the new year. I also write for an international education company. My articles are geared towards high school students around the world as they prepare the application process for an education abroad. This is a huge passion of mine, as I received my Masters Degree abroad in Ireland. I completed a degree in Comparative Literature and Cultural Studies. This course opened up an entirely new world of authors, genres and challenged me in ways I am forever grateful for.

Creative writing, articles, blogs, content etc. I love merely love constructing words and creating something bigger. And I do hope to prove myself to many clients as I delve into life as full time writer. :)
