Joined 6 years ago from Massachusetts




Also follow me on:

Writer with education in (surprise) writing, editing and communication. Bachelor of Arts in English and obtaining Master of Science in Organizational and Professional Communication. Also proud owner of a Certificate of Achievement in Writing from Emerson College in Boston.

I had some ideas to share and thought this would be a great place to start a discussion or two. My experience, and likely topics of discussion, includes the outdoors, traveling and lawn care. Sound random? Basically. But it's the life I live and the one I enjoy.

Here's some more background information which hopefully provides further credibility to my pieces:

I have over 15 years of experience in the lawn care industry. I love stepping out into the always unpredictable New England weather and getting down and dirty. My goal is to provide you with new knowledge of the field. And hey, I might even help you turn that struggling lawn into something respectable for your next cookout.

I also fell in love with the great outdoors and traveling when I was a kid. It helped me escape the books and create lifelong friends and memories. Some of my most memorable adventures include hiking in New Hampshire's White Mountains, rafting in Maine and kayaking around New England.

I hope you enjoy, and I always welcome feedback and comments!
