About Me

 “Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up”
– Galatians 6:9

I’m an avid eater, stylish sweatpants sporter, music snob, winter-wear enthusiast, unhealthy TV show binge-watcher, em-dash convert, passionate hater of restrictive word counts, zealous story-teller, apprehensive Oxford comma user(,) and aspiring journalist. This website is basically a compilation of all the various things I’ve “created”

    • Quotes:
      • “They carried the sky. The whole atmosphere, they carried it, the humidity, the monsoons, the stink of fungus and decay, all of it, they carried gravity.”
      • “The thing about a story is that you dream it as you tell it, hoping that others might then dream along with you, and in this way memory and imagination and language combine to make spirits in the head. There is the illusion of aliveness.
      • “They carried all they could bear, and then some, including a silent awe for the terrible power of the things they carried.”
      • “But the thing about remembering is that you don’t forget. You take your material where you find it, which is in your life, at the intersection of past and present. The memory-traffic feeds into a rotary up on your head, where it goes in circles for a while, then pretty soon imagination flows in and the traffic merges and shoots off down a thousand different streets. As a writer, all you can do is pick a street and go for the ride, putting things down as they come at you. That’s the real obsession. All those stories.”
