Skills

Writer

During my college career I focused primarily on enhancing my writing skills and abilities as a critical thinker. I've done a lot of creative writing and have had many successes in that area, including having plays produced at Steppenwolf Theatre and Pegasus Players. I also wrote for Chicago Flame, the independent student newspaper of the University of Illinois at Chicago, and have been a contributing writer to Chicago Unzipped and the entertainment website Starpulse. Currently I run a blog, Wide-Eyed and Wild, which I make quality post to on a consistent basis and that has become increasingly popular in the past few   I've worked in many capacities as a writer and write constantly--personally and professionally--in order to keep my skills honed and developing, eager for the next project that allows me to exercise my masterful control of the language.
