I'm a free-spirit who hates looking back. Every experience in our life is there to help us grow - I grew up in Northwest Indiana, but I claim Chicago as my hometown. I'm a die-hard White Sox fan because of my Poppa who loved to listen to the games when working in the yard.

It took me a long time to figure out who I was inside, but now that I know, there's no stopping me. I write life. It's ugly and messy and hard sometimes, but that's what leads us to the most beautiful moments. Sometimes second chances are needed. And I totally believe love happens when you least expect it.
