Wow, a lot has changed in my life since I last updated this website. Hard to believe this website is now nearly 12 years old. On my last update, I was 26, single, and relatively new to living in New York City. I lived there for 7 years from 2011 to 2018, had a career in digital media, and met a ton of amazing friends and my spouse before moving back to the Midwest. I'm now 33, married with two dogs, and bought a house in St. Louis. After moving back, I went to school for social work and now have a new career as a hospice social worker.

I don't think I will be making many changes to this site any time soon (if ever at all), but I am glad to pay the $10 a year it costs to let this content just kind of sit here so that students across the world can continue to read my essays. Keep sending me your emails. It's been fun to read them.

One exception: To the SEO people who keep sending me emails offering to revamp the website ... Don't bother. I know it is not optimally designed, and don't really care.

This website has bits and pieces of all sorts, from essays I wrote for college classes, to film reviews, to journalistic pieces, to blog posts on various topics. Please enjoy! And be sure to contact me if you have any questions or comments.
