“We are what we pretend to be, so we must be careful about what we pretend to be.” – Kurt Vonnegut

 

I was never much of a writer. Or rather, I never considered myself much of one. In the words of Kurt Vonnegut, "We are what we pretend to be, so we must be careful about what we pretend to be." I didn't consider myself a writer because I didn't want to bear the weight of the title. I wasn't ready to have my work judged within the context of a "writer." The title of "writer" implies a greater sense of purpose, truth, and responsibility, which was (knowingly) not evident in my previous work.

 

Through the Gateway course for the Minor in Writing, I have challenged myself to produce writing that transcends previous capablities. From Why I Write to The Language Forgotten: A Father's Tale, I have sought to discover my voice as a writer, unbound by academic limitations. All projects were composed of my own accord, and in this way, I was able to find value in each and every project. I am proud of the work I have created in this course and for that, I am a writer.

Aside from being a writer, I am an active foodie, record collector, and over-thinker. I aspire to become a physician with an after-work jazz band. Born in California, raised in Michigan, I draw inspiration from my family and various travels.
