I’m a creative nonfiction writer, political and health reporter, and recent world traveler. This is my personal blog where I explore new ideas, vent, share information, and keep a general log of the things happening around me and in my head.
after living my life as a cocky, academically successful thinker and published writer and small town self-proclaimed bohemian, i definitely didn’t expect to find myself on this doe-eyed wandering path after college, working random jobs in offices, getting ego bruises from editors, and uncertain of how to become the successful writer i knew i could be. i started asking myself cliche questions i thought i’d already answered, like, ‘why am i here?’ and ‘will i ever find my success?’ and the ever-popular ‘why work? sun’s out.’
onward goes the quest to find new and awesome ways to do what i love and believe in. onward goes the quest to find ways of making money and find success without selling my soul to stagnation and/or materialism.
currently living in korea to avoid the american economy, gain some real life know-how, understand the different ways in which other cultures dictate the human experience, read some korean literature, do a ton of yoga, and try my hand at teaching.
i like writing, learning new things, watching fish swim, sitting in windows, running up stairs, riding my bike, thinking in stanzas, and standing on my head.
i don’t like violence, white chocolate, driving, watching tv, bad writing and boring architecture, fluorescent lighting, or being cold.
