I am affluent, creative, logical & illogical. I am random, witty, and educated (very). I have worked in the Pentagon speaking to about 30,000 people a day, to working at the Naval Academy policy writing and some other pretty dull activities. I love words, and I am not afraid to use them! I have done social media writing, bio's, presskits, professional letterheads, to cool facebook statuses for Gen X'ers. I can write your way into the hall of fame of creative literature. I have been featured by DefenseNews as a fledging writer, currently working on two books, and a book of metaphorical poetry. I am more than honored to submit free work to amuse you to hiring me! Just ask! :D
