I was born to tell stories. I am avid fan of the English language and various writing styles. I use both to connect with my readers. I am experienced at writing feature articles, news reports, editorials, TV and radio scripts and short stories. I like writing about the news, sports, music, cultural diversity, travel and trends. My goal is to work, experience and write and produce as much as possible.
