Writing nonfiction requires a confrontation with reality that isn’t always desirable. While fiction allows me to escape my everyday life, sharing my views on the world is sobering and daunting at times.
We live in a time when escapism is more commonplace than self-reflection. Advances in technology have given us the option to amplify our inner thoughts or drown them out completely. I find myself constantly teetering back and forth between immersion and avoidance.
I began writing nonfiction in college and have always gone back to it. After coming to the realization that I will always be a writer,even if I choose not to write for periods of time, I decided to put it all in one place. The works below represent my present and my past. In the future I hope to share my words in the pages of The Miami Herald, Vogue and The New Yorker.
