About Me
Overall I'm an easy read; what you see is what you get. My younger years aspired in professional sports, later in life evolved around business as an entrepreneurial type willing to accept calculated risks while creating new and innovative solutions. On the personal side, I'm a people-person who always enjoys meeting new people, especially those with the promise of lasting friendships.
Type of Writer
Perhaps "sporadic" best describes me; writing only when inspired with definitive themes in mind vs simple story-telling.
Writing Style
Aside from penning a multi-layered theme item at times, I think I'm more of a humorist at heart.
Genuine people for toasting a lively camaraderie with a fine bourbon; putting for birdies, cashing trifectas, and pushing the pen when the muse decides to pay a visit.
