I’m a writer. I enjoy writing creative pieces that allow me to think outside the box. I like researching and learning new things. I’m versatile. I can write straight news pieces, recaps, advertisements, features, opinion pieces, fiction, or any other genre or type of writing that you can think of. I can write with humor or no emotion at all. I specialize in sports, entertainment, and pop culture, but have ventured into other areas. I write. That’s what I do and that’s what I love doing.
