A year out of college with a B.A. in Creative Writing and a Minor in Film Studies, I live life passionately and curiously as I seek to really wet my feet in the waters of the writing world. (Count the Ws in that if you like.)

I write and co-create a webcomic called Ever Night while writing other pieces such as short stories, blogs, and more lit fic style samples for grad school resumes.

I don't have any paid, professional experience but don't let that fool you--I'm a hell of a wordsmith just looking for her chance. More than proficient with social networking and content writing, poke around Ever Night to see links to most of my social outlets.

Have any questions about me or my skills? Just ask.
