I graduated college some time aga. Between then and now i have served in the U.S. Coast Guard, worked on a number of community newspapers and assisted in the work of a small foundation that built 72 units of affordable housing in Noth Hempstead, NY. Through all of this I have been writing. I have had work before an audience and they saw it through to the end. It's the most rewarding work I have ever done and I want more of it.
