A photo of my desk in my old office in downtown Springfield, take way back in April of 2013.

I usually have a few writing projects that I’m in the middle of—this website being one of them.

Sitting down with a blank paper—or screen, in most cases—is both terrifying and incredibly exciting. Outside of travel, there are few experiences more fulfilling to me than writing. They both induce this of leaping into the unknown just to see what will happen. And that provides me with both energy and a feeling of purpose.

I’m currently working on some short stories that I read only to my children, mainly my daughter. They have been very well received.
