About

The term Pulp Fiction refers to the pulp magazines and crime novels popular during the mid-20th century, known for their graphic violence and punchy dialogue. Quentin Tarantino represented this genre cinematically Pulp Fiction (the movie) was presented out of chronological sequence in a hyper-realistic, disjointed landscape that introduced the characters’ personalities and tied story lines together through monologue.

This is very much what I intend to do with this blog. I will be presenting vignettes of the life to which a Paramedic bears witness, with interspersed narratives that tie the elements together in (what I hope you find to be) an entertaining and informative style. My goals are three fold: to give outsiders a better understanding of the life that we live; to let insiders know that they are not alone; and on a personal level, to explore a creative endeavor that helps to relieve stress and better myself in the process.

I feel I must also add some disclaimers: I respect my patients and their rights to privacy. All posts are compliant with the stipulations of HIPAA and as such, ALL patient demographics have been altered, ALL locations are changed or avoided, ALL names are figments of my imagination, ALL posts are in compliance with my company’s digital publishing policies.
