Hello - I'm an journalist, copywriter & aspiring sports photographer
A native of Houston, Texas, Sirman has lived most of his life in Magnolia while attending schools in Waller. He attended Sam Houston State University, graduating with a Bachelor of Arts in English while minoring in Creative Writing. He writes poetry and short stories in his spare time. You can also find him reading classic literature, like Hemingway and Faulkner, when he’s not working on writing his own stories.
Regarding the writing field, my expertise rests in the editorial department, but overall I’m proficient in organizing, researching, revising, and editing while maintaining near-perfect grammar and spelling. But when it comes to being a journalist, I excel at keeping on deadline, interviewing, maintaining relationships with officials, and knowing what specific communities want in a newspaper or online magazine. Those are only some of my expertise in the writing and journalism field, and I’m always learning ways to improve in my field, so I’m also flexible when it comes to being taught anything new.
I’ve been writing since I was little; my mother likes to tell a story about how she caught me writing when I was six about one of my terrible aunts and that she knew then that I remembered everything and would be writing for the rest of my life. She wasn’t wrong; I remember everything and continue to write to this day. Still, now I’ve taken that love of writing for myself and turned it into business writing, working as a copywriter at first after college to now working as a journalist; the only next step I have is writing a full-fledged novel, but that will come in time whenever I’m entirely comfortable in my professional life.
Besides that, I graduated from Sam Houston State University in Huntsville, Texas; I studied English and Creative Writing while maintaining a 4.0 GPA and appearing on the Dean’s List 3 times in my academic career. I plan on returning to school to start my Master’s degree because I sincerely love everything about learning and firmly believe that working the mind leads to a happier life.
