Moved to Austin, Texas to take a great writing job after spending the last four years in Alaska. I've done okay freelance writing, but am learning to use those skills to try and make a full time living online while enjoying my new city. UPDATE: as the old song says, "on the road again" :)

I absolutely love making a living with my words, and enjoy the community that places like Hubpages offers. My interests are extremely varied in a very Renaissance Man sort of way, and there are a few examples down near the bottom of the profile.

Some of my best hubs:

Where Should I Immigrate - A Humorous Contemplation

Living in Alaska

Why Heroin?

Retirement Savings Made Easy

How to Get Rid of Recurring Nightmares

Live Life to the Fullest

And many more to come as the list grows :D

As time goes on I hope to be able to share a lot more of my other work here, as well.
