I'm a writer with a love of language. I have a BA in English Creative Writing and a minor in Geology. I am currently a graduate student working on a Masters in Creative Writing. I write poetry and short fiction. I also comment extensively on politics at the Huffington Post news site. I am a strong advocate for equality in all forms, and equal access to government and resources. I play poker, shoot pool, ride horses, go camping and fishing, and I'm about to learn disc golf this weekend. I used to hike until my knees went bad. I have lived in the south, Midwest, and far west of the country as well as visited many places in-between. My favorite pastimes are reading, writing and exploring language.
