Sentences elevate minds when words are chosen with care. A thoughtful combination of words can wake up the brain space by revealing new perspectives in clever ways, thus challenging readers to investigate further through the lens of their own life travels.

In that spirit, I regularly share the definitions of words I think exemplify dark-roasted language, i.e. the bold, rich, and flavorful ingredients necessary for engaging prose. My hope, dear readers, is that you find these words most agreeable and will pocket one or more of these gems to help infuse your personal or professional writing with an extra dose of caffeinated thinking!

I observe life through steaming coffee and an energized imagination. When that's coupled with my rich background in writing, visual communication, and concept development, I become a barista of words and art. A craftsman of communication. Someone who combines creative thought with meaningful substance in order to provide a rich reading experience that caffeinates the brain space.
