Born in the ancient, mist-shrouded, tear-stained, blood-drenched land of Alba (OK, Scotland) a few years before the U.S.S.R. threw Sputnik into orbit (I'm no spring chicken), I've finally decided that it's high time to do that "thing that I love"...thing. I list Poem Writing as my first skill, but that actually means that I can craft jingles, product-oriented ditties fashioned to any tune or song you can come up with. I have no professional portfolio, but I've been dabbling successfully for years. Seriously, ask my friends. (Happy Face here). Also know my way around screenplays (BEAT) character dialogue a strong point.
