It's been said that a good writer tells you about his characters, a bad writer tells you about himself. That being said, I'm a pretty lousy writer. Despite this flaw, I still think that at the very least I am an entertaining writer. I've been writing poetry since Kindergarten, fiction since I was in the 3rd grade, and lyrics since High School. I've lived a fairly full life; I've earned a Black Belt in Goshin Ichimukusan Do, I've played in front of people in a rock band, and I'm a paratrooper in the 82nd Airborne Division of the US Army. All the thoughts and feelings and situations I've found myself in have created a reservoir of surplus emotions and thoughts that demand to be given voice, and through my writing I hope to let down the flood gates.
