What I read

I generally have about three to four books going at a time -- usually nonfiction, with an occasional piece of fiction thrown in the mix.

Side projects

I launched and manage a personal growth/health & wellness blog - (Developed the branding and messaging, look and feel, as well as continue to write and format all posts.)

Ideal team

I like working with smart, friendly and respectful clients who appreciate the value of professional-level writing. I operate by the adage, "Do what you say you are going to do, by when you say you're going to do it," and I like the same in clients.
