About Me

I am a lover of arts, entertainment and sports. Writing has always been an integral part of me and is the reason I majored in English. It is my gift and as a creative who takes joy in putting pen to paper, I embrace compiling compelling narratives from the world around us. I pride myself on my impeccable work ethic which has demonstrated my dedication and commitment to the people I served throughout each stage of my professional career. Each of these experiences has increased my ability to compromise, respect others and be a good listener.
