I am a skilled and detail-oriented writer with excellent grammar/spelling/editing skills. I have knowledge in a wide variety of subjects, and I absorb and synthesize new information quickly. I recently completed my coursework for an MFA Writing degree from Naropa University. I have experience writing fiction, critical essays, and reviews. I travel as much as I can, have had contact with a wide variety of cultures, and try to experience life's richness and subtlety as fully as possible. I believe this depth and breadth of experience allows me to offer insight on many contemporary issues.
