I am a freelancer specializing in SEO content writing. I write in a variety of niches such as video games, animals, and managed service providers. I've been writing full-time since 2018, so I've been doing remote work before it was cool.

When I'm not working, I can be found reading, trying to catch up on my tv show backlog, playing video games, and starting stories that I'll never finish.

Triceratops vs Styracosaurus: Who Would Win in a Fight? Picture

Not all dinosaurs were large meat-eaters with a bite strong enough to crush a car. Some of these reptiles were large herbivores that wanted to find a meal and stay out of harm’s way.
