I’m a fifth-year middle school teacher, retired roller derby skater, fiancé to the love of my life, and a full-time dog mom. Growing up in Southern California, I wanted to be a writer. I typically enjoyed writing poetry, but I also dabbled in short stories and I once started a novel (although I never finished it). Now that I have found my voice again after all these years, I hope that writing about my life experiences can somehow help, inspire, teach, or even just bring joy to someone who needs it.
