If I’ve learned anything from all the places I’ve lived and traveled—from the suburbs of Chicago to the ruins of Italy, from the coasts of California, Boston, and Florida—one thing is clearly universal:  we connect by telling stories. Words have the power to transport. Stories transcend our everyday, personal experiences. I seek to document and share my experiences. I want to unearth the beautifully flawed and interesting characters that simmer in my imagination. I believe that we all have a story to tell. And no one can tell the same story in the exact same way. Thanks for being here for mine!
