When all else fails, write.

Earning happiness means doing good and working... laziness may look inviting, but only work gives you true satisfaction.
— Anne Frank

I started exploring the power of words when my high school gossip column started getting the attention of more than just envious teenage girls and boys.

When I entered the working world, taking complicated subjects and making them simple became almost a sport, it came so easy. My skill with the English language had become an asset beyond the water cooler. 

My fingers are always itching for new opportunities in website copywriting, blogging, or social media frenzy. I'm a freelancer with a portable headquarters. For large projects I prefer an hourly rate, for smaller I charge by the page.
