2011

In 1998, I registered for my first website.  It was one of those Angelfire or Geocities accounts with an absurdly long URL.  I created pages by using Microsoft Frontpage, and knew only how to use basic tables to get approximately the look I wanted.  There were cursors that sparkled, animated gifs and a lot of Comic Sans.

I always thought though, that it might be nice to one day own my own URL.  The one with my name on it.  At sixteen, I had no idea what the point of that might be, but it seemed cool to have.

Last year, I bought my domain name and parked it.

Today, with the help of fantastic dreammaker/brander/website developer and dear friend, Kym Pham, I am finally launching my own website.  One tiny little piece of a big dream.  What I do is write.  But more than that; what I do is attempt to find beauty everywhere I go.


I am a writer, a dreamer, a teacher, a reader.  I am earnest and effervescent all at the same time.  Thanks for stopping by.  Stick around.  Maybe you’ll find something that speaks to you.
