About Me


Wouldn’t it be great to be able to actually write one of these ‘about me’s and actually sound articulate? Yeah, that’s not going to happen here. My writing is like having a conversation with me. Ask anyone that has had a conversation with me and knows me, what you read here is really how it happens.My spelling, punctuation and sentence structure is much like Coleman Barks; without the awards. Don’t judge me by my horribleness in these departments.
