Work has previously appeared: Local/Regional Magazine

I am a soon to be award-winning columnist who focuses on writing ridiculous things. I believe there are too many opinions in the world that are being presented as facts. If anything, my writing is unencumbered by fact. I think my readers appreciate this. My style is a good fit for those looking for someone who writes with both wit and edge. My work has often been called "conversational". I like to think it's genuine. Over the top, yet definitely genuine. I have appeared in Velocity Weekly as both a movie critic and now as a columnist. Although I enjoyed writing as a critic, I have found a greater deal of freedom as a columnist and I think my writing has flourished. I have attached samples of my writing. After 30 days, the columns become archived and there is a cost to view them. Because of that, I've provided a link to the archive where abstracts of my work are available. I will try to keep the first two links updated with current/free pieces.
