WRITING

Putting ideas to a page is terrifying for some. For me, it's a thrill.

Here you will see not only writing examples from DePaul's PRAD

program, but also professional writing I was hired to do for Matador

Network, a travel web site in partnership with Louisiana Tourism;

as well as the musings of my own travel blog, HANKheartsTRAVEL. 

"Either write something worth reading or do something worth writing."
