This page contains stories and poetry from the past few years. There is something incredibly satisfying about exercising creativity through the arrangement of words and sentences. I aspire to tell many more stories to come in the future. For now, it is humbling to have a home for the stories I’ve lived thus far. It is humbling to imagine the process that great authors undertake to craft the many novels that have shaped the man I am today.
Thank you so much for your support and I hope you find something new or old, fun or sad, inspiring or discouraging amongst these stories. Please feel free to contact me if you’d like to pitch a story idea or collaborate on a project!
Please enjoy these stories and poetry attempts.

He chipped away at his goals inconsistently.” Read on…
“Hump Day. Bump day. Life in a cycle. Riding a tricycle. Need three wheels to stay grounded. Three points of connection to keep from falling. Instability. Insecurity. Wish I could just write a clever little ditty. Send it off to a high-powered executive and, in return, receive a handsome check that’ll pay off my debt.” Read on…
