Hello and thanks for visiting my page! I hope you enjoy my hubs.

There's really not a lot for me to say about myself here. I'm a writer for a small community newspaper who studied Journalism and Telecommunications at Ball State University.

I'm also an avid sports fan, a movie buff, and something of a classic videogame aficionado. Most of my hubs will be about these things and other silly nonsense, but just occasionally, I may actually write something helpful. :)

At any rate, thanks for reading and feel free to "follow" me. I'll certainly reciprocate the favor.
