I'm a freelance writer.
I write mostly news stories, but also copy for businesses. I write about a lot, but mostly on the latest business news in Argentina. That's where I live with my wife and three children, far from my Southern California and my wife’s England.
I also write about the funny stuff my wife and kids get up to on a blog: http://www.pinetreeparadise.com/.
The stories are kind of funny.
I write as a reporter.
On the creative side, I write because I want to and because I have to get out what's in my head. I carry around a pen and notebook most everywhere, and I can scribble down an entire piece when on the subway or on the beach, where people, places and the things that happen can feed me with description, dialogue and ideas. This is what fuels my creativity – the stuff that happens every day. Of course, a healthy imagination helps, too.
There are many. Up there is Ray Bradbury. But more so, it is books that make my favorites list, such as The Comfort of Strangers, To Kill a Mockingbird, Seize the Day, The Sun Also Rises, The Damned United, Drown and Fahrenheit 451.
