Useless things about me

I started writing sonnets in the third grade and now I'm an amateur poet, playwright, essay writer, short story writer, librettist, and novelist. My typical genres are experimental and avant garde writing. I also illustrate my own novels with charcoal sketches and abstract paintings.

I specialize in nonsense poetry, antinovels, magic realism, absurdist fiction, surrealist fiction, and occasionally erotic literature. Some of my influences include John Milton, Franz Kafka, Leo Tolstoy, Vladimir Nabokov, D.H. Lawrence, Ernest Hemingway, James Joyce, Lewis Carroll, Charles Baudelaire, Emile Zola, Marcel Proust, Samuel Beckett, Oscar Wilde, and David Foster Wallace.

I have five complete novels that I still have to muster up the courage to share.

When I'm not writing, I write librettos for music I produce, since I love opera. Sometimes I sit back and play my guitar, ukulele, or bass. Or I binge watch old soap operas or sitcoms (I love you Frasier Crane!), while binge eating whatever food I cooked or baked (cooking is so much fun!)

Maybe I'll just water my many plants, practice my bachata sensual dancing, or just watch ballroom dancing competitions, hoping one day I'll learn how to dance Argentine Tango.

Currently, I am a college student majoring in English at Sussex County Community College until I transfer to a university to study Comparative Literature with a focus on French and Russian
