Finding Poetic Inspiration While On A Bike Ride


As many of you know I was able to visit Park City a few months ago, for the Sundance Film Festival. I never got the opportunity to write about it, so I will take the time to do so now. It goes without saying that I was out of my mind seeing all the celebrities and enjoying […]

My conversion to EBooks (and how I nearly converted back by accident)


EBooks have changed my life. I was an avid reader beforehand, but one of my worst sins was a tendency to try and read five books at once. I would have Moby Dick, Jurassic Park, Memoirs of a Geisha, A Game of Thrones, or one of my many books of poetry all beside my bed, […]

To My Fellow Artists


I’ve been going on a rant these past couple of days, and I won’t apologize for the fact that it’s going to carry over into my professional life as well. This is something that is VERY near and dear to me. I recently took part in an event on campus during which there was an […]

My World


I truly appreciate you taking the time out of your day to visit my corner of the internet. I am a full time student. I am an english major at USC. I’m nearing graduation and I feel my studies have been well worth it. I have achieved success that some authors only dream of. I […]
