Firstly, I must state that I hate writing about myself, so I'm going to make this part a bit more too the point. I was born in Weymouth, MA on June 24, 1986 and lived in various parts of Massachusetts until I was 19. I hadn't accomplished much in life, aside from volunteering at the American Red Cross and obtaining a few computer science certificates; so I decided to look for something more meaningful. I initially wanted to join the Peace Corps, but I never thought I could afford college and you need at least a 2 year degree. After some consideration I decided to join the Army instead. Within two weeks I had talked with a recruiter, went to M.E.P.S, aced my A.S.V.A.B test, and shipped off for basic training. I went through tons of training, jumped out of airplanes, and ended up in R.I.P. I have no idea how I went from wanting to join the Peace Core to being in Ranger training. I basically did my time and was thrilled to transfer back to civilian life, even though it was beyond difficult. I've mainly worked in sales and on the technical side of the communications industry since then, but I have found solace in writing. It's wonderful to create a world were anything and everything could happen. It's a beautiful world beyond the limits of your eyes and even if I found myself starving because I could nothing but write, I'd be happy. I have been searching for an occupation that left me feeling fulfilled my entire life and without a doubt I can say writing is that career. If I succeed I will continue to write, if I fail I will write even more. This is my passion.
