I've been writing for almost three years now since senior year in high school. I enjoy writing about simple dramas that I envision in my head. To facilitate my writing so it's easier to create, I usually listen to different types of music and watch movies that I can use as a raw example.

Zack is a father of two young boys. That's what has defined him as a person for the past 5 and a half years, and he couldn't be happier about it. Every once in a while he enjoys wandering around wooded areas performing Shakespeare. Luckily every so often other people join him, and it becomes an actual show. He lives in Massachusetts, which means in the winter he's buried in snow, and the summer he's dripping in sweat from the oppressive humidity.
