Before I could speak openly to the world, I communicated through my writing. For years, it seemed, writing was the only way in which I knew to speak. And, oddly enough, I was heard. I began writing at a very young age and this talent was later recognized by my being accepted into the Duke Ellington School of the Arts in Washington, DC. There, I specialized in writing, photography and radio production. In my youth, my work won quite a few local contests and was published in some unknown anthologies. That very love of writing and literature – art and music, culture and freedom – propelled me to pursue my BA degree in Humanities and English. I'm presently working on completing my first novel as well as having a collection of my poetry and short stories published. Though my foundation rests on my being a poet and prose writer, I have established a business in providing writing and editing services for individuals, non-profit organizations and small businesses.
