United States - Last active: 22 hours ago - Tests: 27 - Portfolio: 3

I have a great passion for writing in any form. The act of putting a word to a page screams life into me. I have been compared to Edgar Allan Poe in my style. I tend find my love most in absurdism and existentialism, but I make it a point to research and practice as many styles within as many genres and subjects, always putting the work first; no matter my initial interest, I have always ended a project hungry for more. I am adaptable to any given guideline or format. I love to re-purpose articles and make them something entirely wonderful and new. I have studied technical and creative writing at The King's College in New York and I currently attend New York Conservatory for Dramatic Arts for acting and creative writing.
