Hello everybody, my name is Kevin Simpson, I am 23 years old, and I am a graduate of the University of California Riverside. I was born and raised in the Bay Area, specifically Union City, which is just south of Oakland. I attended Moreau Catholic High School in Hayward, CA where I played baseball and basketball all four years. While studying at UCR, I dabbled in computer science and history before settling on creative writing. There was something about writing that caught my attention. There are few things that I don’t find interesting in this world and writing seems to be the one thing that can encompass all of my interests. I have a long list of hobbies, but to just name a few: I enjoy reading, which is a no brainer, as well as playing basketball, baseball, video games, and watching movies. My future plans at this moment are unknown, but I have aspirations that I hope to fulfill by the end of this program. There is still plenty I have to learn and I can’t wait to do so.
