When I'm not writing out the stories in my head, you'll find me working in the programming department of a cable network that's based in Los Angeles. Before crossing over to live-action and animation production, I was a story producer for six years on prime time reality shows, like FOX's Trading Spouses and Kitchen Nightmares, and NBC's hit game show Deal or No Deal. I refer to that period of my life as my dark years.

Born in Australia, I was raised in Virginia, lived briefly outside Chicago, and then settled in Los Angeles about eight years ago. All that moving around spawned a nomadic spirit that pesters me to travel whenever I have the chance. I've visited every continent, except South America and Antarctica (the latter of which I'm not l

Description: These are some of the very short stories, poems, and random musings I've had fun writing in my copy of 365 Things to Write About. Every day, I flip to a page in the book and write whatever comes to mind about the random subject at the top of the page. No matter how I felt before I picked up the pen, I always feel ten times better after writing a silly story or expressing my fears and worries in a poem or rambling reflection on life. If you'd like to see other posts from other writers who are using 365 Things to Write About, I recommend checking out the website www.365thingstowrite.com.
