What Drives Me: As a writer I'm driven by the passion to tell stories that I find meaningful. Much of that has to do with looking at the world differently and expressing it in a way that is both entertaining and though provoking. I work consistently writing four to six hours a day while on a project. Though writing is often a difficult process the progression of a creative work is highly fulfilling and exciting. It is well worth the time and effort.
