Writer

I write to inform, educate, and inspire change. Our world has many problems, and we often choose to ignore them, even if they are right in front of us. I want to create dialog through communication so that we can work together to create the a better future for all of humanity. Below are clips of my published articles.  I retain publication rights, so if you are interested in picking up any of these pieces for your use, please contact me here.
