I love to hear the stories of others' and inspire them with real life stories that encourage and educate.
Today, I write articles, short stories, poetry, blogs for business, blogs for education, intern curricula, advertising and marketing copy, business film scripts, and more. I write for my current full-time job, as well as freelance for other publications on the web.

I thoroughly enjoyed my brief stay at the Daily Nebraskan before I switched my major to History.
