By day I teach 2nd grade in Las Vegas. In the evening I read and try to write when my brain isn't fried from school and exercise. While I love teaching, I would prefer to write full time. It was a passion of mine for many years, but I fell out of it during college when my leisure activities caught up with me. Creative outlets are a must for me at this point in my life. Reading and writing keep me grounded.

I read Yahoo News daily. Mostly, I stick to topics that interest me: Exercise, Health, History, Nutrition, Science, Boxing, Discoveries, Technology, World News and Domestic Affairs. Open source news and information are highlights to modern life, especially here in America. Everything is literally, at our finger tips.

As I've gotten older, my thirst for knowledge has grown. I believe in personal responsibility, as world citizens, to learn about our fellow human beings, the places live, and the evolving condition of this planet. If we aren't using modern technology as a means bring societies closer, than whats the point?

In my leisure time I travel, exercise like a maniac and study health and nutrition. Writing full time is the end game. I have heavy interest in becoming a travel writer; giving readers a picture of different places and people.

The goal for my Hubs is to entertain, educate and inform.

Whether you like or dislike, agree or disagree, please let me know. Constructive criticism is not only welcomed, its expected.
