I publish essays, short stories, poems, and podcasts.

The primary subject I wish to explore on this small piece of internet real estate is the role chance plays in our lives.

I believe our lives become defined by the chances we take and the chances we give.

There’s nothing like taking a chance on yourself. It conjures an extraordinary mix of emotions: anxiety, hope, fear, and inspiration.

Conversely, I’ve yet to find anything more meaningful than giving another person a chance—the exciting intentionality.

And, yes, the unwieldy, unpredictable nature of it too.
