Professional Experience

An all-around geek enthusiast and writer, I freelance for a number of websites mostly covering Science Fiction and fantasy genres. I've tapped into independent short films and post-modern feminism as well, this was in part to build my portfolio that consists of more than just my passion to immerse in the things I love (i.e. Game of Thrones and Star Wars), but also my niche in the role I play as an author. I grew up in the Lower East Side of Manhattan and like any New Yorker am accustomed to the fast paced life. Writing became a channel to slow things down a bit and with this I learned to appreciate the creative aspects of the written word. Science fiction, comics and fantasies in particular were my outlets in building my vocabulary and imagination. I used this throughout my formative years and straight through college along with the many professors and professional writers who inspired me to major in this field.
