I'm an indie author and scribbler of inane babble that can sometimes end up as stories. I went to Columbia College Chicago where I earned a BA in Fiction Writing. I am currently the author of two short story collections, and I also might've written two books while I was in high school, but I refuse to own up to them. Ask me if they exist, and you will be shunned! (not really, but I will deny that they are by me).
Some of my favorite writers are Raymond Carver, Richard Yates, Kurt Vonnegut, Chuck Palahniuk, Bret Easton Ellis and Hunter S. Thompson.
In all seriousness, I don't know where I would be if I didn't have writing as a creative outlet for myself. I love to tell stories, tragic or goofy.
