My currently active and most recent/notable items.
It can be difficult to navigate through someone's portfolio in an effort to find new writing, active items, and the things they're proud of. I've decided to create this appendix to put all of my current works and community activities, as well as the older stuff I'm most proud of, in one place where visitors can find everything quickly and easily.
For my newest works, I keep everything created during the current and previous calendar year in these folders:
