Who am I?

Although I have done many jobs in my life, I mostly think of myself as a writer. I love finding the darkness that hides beneath the smiles and discovering the laughs people need to get them through the storms. I believe stories, like life, should never depend on one tone and should instead capture the cross-section of emotions we each have to deal with.
