I write to understand my world.

From its roots, my writing has grown and branched off into a variety of topics and genres. Like a tree, it constantly grows as I learn more about the process of writing, learn about the world around me, and learn about myself as a writer. I use my writing to make sense of questions on my mind, to discover through research, create through prose and poetry, and fight for what I believe in with blog posts and essays. This portfolio is a tree of knowledge, a place to chart my growth as a writer, a place to try new techniques and make mistakes, and an open space to learn from the forest of writers around me. Whether you are here to learn, to share your knowledge, or to be inspired, I hope you find what you are looking for.
