Overview

I hold an MFA in Creative Writing from Louisiana State University, and I have published book and video game reviews, fiction, creative nonfiction, and poetry. Additionally, I have editorial experience as I was the Assistant Editor of New Delta Review while at LSU.

In addition to creative pursuits, I worked as an IT specialist at a Midwestern law firm. In that capacity, I had to write how-to manuals for the attorneys and staff about various hardware and software programs.
