I'm a freelance writer currently based in St. Augustine, Fla.
Born on the Gulf Coast of Florida, I was raised on the water and I love boating of any kind.
Though I maintain a strong bond with the Gulf of Mexico, I've always been very much drawn to the Atlantic Ocean, and I enjoy living on the East Coast. I have a 34' Bristol sloop which I hope to sail across the Atlantic some day.
Florida has been my home for most of my life, but I have also lived in Los Angeles and Boston.
My college years were spent in Gainesville, where I attended The University of Florida, studying journalism, creative writing and political science.
After college, I wrote for The Gainesville Sun newspaper for about five years. I currently write news and features for The St. Augustine Record and several other publications.
I'm an avid follower of college football and a diehard Gator.
I am drawn to creative people who do things their own way. Writing and history are two of my biggest interests, and I also love music. I play guitar and sing, and have written dozens of songs over the years. At one time, I entertained the notion of making a living with music.
In addition to my journalistic writing, I'm working on a novel set in St. Augustine, Fla. I also have two screenplays in various stages of completion.
