I appreciate all the little things in life. I got an MFA in Creative Writing from Wilkes University. I work in Internet Marketing (Search Engine Optimization, to be precise), and I teach an English course at Luzerne County Community College. In my spare time I enjoy painting, singing karaoke, crocheting, and watching good movies. I navigated a quarter-life crisis and managed to land on my feet.
