Sharp Writing: A Place to Showcase My Work


Here you will find various things I have written. Some I wrote as a professional—copywriting, web content, white papers, etc. Some I wrote as an academic—essays, theses, fiction, etc. Some I wrote just for the sake of writing.

I have a master’s degree in rhetoric & composition from the University of Dayton and a bachelor’s in English with a concentration in literature from Wittenberg University. Eventually I might put my resume or CV on this site, but at the moment I’m not looking for work unless you have an offer I can’t refuse. I may be available for freelance work: long-form journalism, web content, copywriting, white papers, and the like. If you want to publish anything you find on this site, contact me with an offer.

The Bootlegger

The Great Nick Carraway

Who doesn’t have a Gatsby paper? My interpretation of The Great Gatsby is not the most conventional view, so you may find this paper to actually be a unique take. I wrote this for Dr. Davis’ class at Wittenberg for my undergrad degree. I probably put way more effort into this paper than I needed to for the grade, but I’m glad I did. Writing it helped me mature as a writer. It also provided me the opportunity to articulate how I feel about The Great Gatsby, a novel I always had strong opinions about.
