Things to Do
Write :)


I started reading (well, really memorizing words) at age 3. After that, I started handwriting little "books" in kindergarten. These were just papers stapled together, with many misspelled words inside. The "books" were fantasy stories about my best friends. My friends couldn't read yet, so they probably trashed the "books". I've always liked writing, even as a little kid. In this section, you can read some of my early stories.

Road Trips

My dad made it a goal for my brother and me to visit all 50 states before I graduate high school. After 4.5 years, on Thanksgiving break of my 9th grade year, our epic journey was completed! This map tracks our travels.

The various colors represent all our different road trips.

When you click on a state, it will take you to my photo website, where you can view pictures taken in that state.

In my immediate family, I have 2 parents and one brother. My brother is 11. He's had his own little mission journey, and has visited 9 missions.
My dad has helped me a lot along the way. He was my private chauffeur, and drove me to each mission. He contacted publishers, e-mailed school districts, and even helped me on this website!
My mom was helping, some, too. She often gave her opinion on my writing.
I owe a lot to my family. Without them, maybe my book wouldn't have even been published.
