I began writing seriously in 2015 during National Novel Writing Month. The experience led to self-publishing my novel Wynden's Legacy in 2017, and numerous screenwriting projects after that. Professionally, I wrote articles for Softonic during 2018 and 2019, when I covered E3 (Electronic Entertainment Expo) at the LA Convention Center.

I wrote tech, gaming, and entertainment articles for Softonic, an internet app center designed to help users find the right software for their business.
I volunteered a semester as a Campus Life journalist with The State Press, an Arizona State University student publication.
I started writing "The Wynden Legacy" in elementary school while inspired by Brian Jacques Redwall series; an epic, swashbuckling saga about anthropomorphic characters in the forest of Mossflower.
In 2015 I joined WORD - the creative writing club at Arizona State University and made a pact with myself to write Wynden's Legacy; the idea was to get started during Nation Novel Writing Month (AKA NaNoWriMo) a challenge to write 50,000 words over the course of November. I succeeded, and the first draft of Wynden's legacy was soon finished at the end of that December at over 90,000 words.
In the summer of 2016, I spent over 150 hours rewriting and editing the manuscript, and finally decided in early 2017 to self-publish through Amazon's Kindle Direct Publishing service, where the book is now available for purchase on Amazon!
This is one of my proudest accomplishments as well as one of my most fondly remembered journeys: from the daily hours spent at the Mesa Public Library to the editing sessions when my family and friends listened to the story around a table. Wynden's Legacy changed a lot over those years, and so did I. Someday I might return to rewrite the story or even continue the narrative with a sequel, but for the moment I'm happy to leave the memories as they are and move on to new projects.
