Writer’s Portfolio

Welcome to my portfolio!

I have been writing, both here on my personal blog, and for professional publications since 2012.  Actually, my first foray into writing began in high school when I was editor on my school’s newspaper and wrote and directed a play for the annual Sears Drama Festival. Writing has always been a huge passion of mine and where I am making my career.  Below, I have listed a few of my favourite and recent pieces, sorted by category.
