I am a sophomore at Clarion University of Pennsylvania studying English Literature with a minor in History. I have been writing since I was very young -- probably eight or nine years old. I have independently published two collections of poetry as well one novel. I am from a small town in rural Pennsylvania, so finding people who share my passion for literature is by no means an easy task. I am a brother of Kappa Delta Rho National Fraternity and a founding father of the Phi Alpha Chapter. I work in the writing center at Clarion University. Working there gives me an opportunity to help people use their voice effectively and show them that everybody has the potential to be a great writer.
