Originally hailing from Asheville, North Carolina, I am a avid perfectionist when it comes to any form of writing or illustration. I have a strong work ethic, and take any job I receive very seriously. I always make an effort to create concise, thorough work that I can take personal pride in. I have worked and traveled extensively in Southeast Asia and Latin America, and specialize in travel writing, although I consider myself to be a very adaptable author. I also have experience with editing and Spanish translation. In addition, I produce fine, detaied drawings and paintings, chiefly portraits of people and animals. I am happy to provide my resume, writing or art samples upon request.
