I am a former lawyer. I have been a stay at home Dad for 16 years for my two daughters. Elevated writing captured me as a child. I'm in awe of superior writing. During undergrad, I was culled out of the pack and offered a chance to tutor. Immensely rewarding, I knew I had found another outlet for my writing and editing madness. The university school government tapped me to preside as chief judge of the school judicial board. I wrote the constitution for the entire student government. I wrote the application forms for clubs and organizations. I successfully ran for student government Co-Executive. My path through undergrad includes debate panelist, Inter-Campus Student Forum, budget chair, history honor society Phi Alpha Theta,Phi Alpha Phi,Dean's List and Magna Cum Laude within my major. Exploring the writer in everyone, I help turn on the intellectual light for writing, poetry interpretation, editing,testing and reading to write papers. I have insightful perspectives for those who love writing, dislike writing and those burdened with annoying writing assignments.
During law school, I participated in all moot court competitions, held a chair on the Dean's Advisory Council and was selected as a Ludwig Von Mies member. My most intense and fulfilling role was as Managing Editor of The Denver Journal of International Law and Public policy. We immersed ourselves in hundreds of lofty submissions seeking publication. As the final editor,I became known as Edit Death. A well earned title I still hold today.
My goal policy remains teaching the skill set for extracting information from any source, then writing a succinct analysis. I write poetry and prose for a variety of writing sites in which I am a top rated poet. Creative writing emerges as my favorite vague writing challenge. Writing as an art form, an end unto itself, frequently evades many students. I can infuse competence and confidence in any writer, for any purpose. I may not compel love of writing, but I can compel the warmth which emerges from writing well. I can teach paths to reduce unwieldy tomes like "The Illiad and the Odyessy" to a single page grandmothers would understand. For those drifting or lost in English demands, I can pilot the way with a personal touch for students who need or want to learn to sculpt words.
