I am a 26 year old father of 3. I work as a para educator in the emotionally disturbed class in an inner city school. Throughout my own tumultuous life I have learned a great deal about the world. Writing has been my sanctuary and later evolved into a canvas onto which I could illustrate the things I was feeling as well as create deep and vivid characters to play host to the many extraordinary people I have come across. I currently run a new blog that is focused on self awareness and overcoming the many challenges created by being neglected and abused. My mantra is "Butterflies Are Crazy" and I use it frequently to describe the way the world seeks to harness the power we possess and keep us filled with fear and self doubt. I believe we can overcome the litany of labels and statistics and spread love and awareness throughout our communities. I am inspired and creative and hard working, and I would love to bring a unique viewpoint to your work, and develop your stories into deep, rich fulfilling narratives.
