I write because I must. I writes because it makes me feel sane. I write because it liberates me, allowing me to step beyond the boundaries of my life. In short, writing is what I live for.
My love affair with the written word started as my dad taught me Shakespearean soliloquies when I was three years old. I used my stories to make friends and intimidate bullies. I wrote to escape and to explore. Most importantly, I produced jungles of rubbish, and eventually figured out how to say what I meant.
It's been my great privilege since 2005 to write a for living, primarily through freelance projects on the topic of SEO and internet technologies. My work has been published with several major outlets, including Search Engine Watch, Search Engine Journal, SalesForce, and Microsoft Rackspace. My creative work has been published in Irreantum, Enormous Rooms, Touchstones, Warp & Weave, V Magazine, and several independent online publications.
