I am an experienced writer by just shy of 20 years. I am creative in my writing, but love poetry the most. My heart and feelings shine inside my poetry and all my writing, but all who read my writings can identify with the words and meaning behind it. Poetry is my true passion of life. I have eight years experience in photography and photojournalism. If photogrpahy is the path I follow, it will be laced with nature and scenic shots. I also carry to the table ten years of administrative support type work, from working in a personnel office, handling records, pay documents, inputting data into a database and other secretarial type jobs.
