Author has written 13 stories for Nature, Fantasy, Life, Essay, Love, General, and Friendship.

I just recently moved to Seattle with my fiance, where I'll be doing some interesting research work in psychology.

In my second to last year of college, I took up writing once again due to the powerful influence of a most excellent teacher who taught the most fulfilling class I had taken- Joe Germana of Transpersonal Psychology at Virginia Tech. I realized how important the creation of art is to being a human present in the world - for me, writing is an aide that helps to seek and open the gates to magical and peak experiences. Above all, I feel these experiences lie in the realm of the natural world that we have a tendency to be closed off to.

Below is a list of categories that briefly outlines influences on my writing.

Metal - The genres of Viking, Power, and Doom

Books/Authors - J.R.R. Tolkien; Carlos Castaneda; Zen Mind, Beginner's Mind

Subjects Both Academic and Spiritual - Zen Buddhism, Transpersonal Psychology, Integrative Psychology, Positive Psychology, and Norse mythology

Scandinavia - Norway and Vikings

The Natural World - Mountains, Landscapes, Skyscapes, and Birds

Losing Youth
It's startling how certain songs or specific images can force us to relive experiences as wholly as if they were occurring in the present. It can be dangerous, or motivating.

This is the result of enjoyable experimentation with the use of meter to enhance imagery, and to spin the story of a bard who receives wizardly insight while embarking on a journey.

From Autumn to White
I was sitting in Philosophy of Mind about a year and a half ago, thinking of how markedly blue the sky was each day, and suddenly the images seized me and caused me to abandon my note-taking and attention to the professor to write this out.
