I'm an author based in Seattle, WA although I spent my youth in GA and Chapel Hill, NC.
I love the process of creating something out of nothing. For many years, I worked from home as a programmer. I'd have an idea for a new product, build it, and my business partner would sell it. After about ten years, I looked around for a change and studied scriptwriting and film directing before settling into writing novels.
I have an Economics degree from Warren Wilson College in Asheville, NC, where students run the various work crews in exchange for free room and board. While there, I also did the Marine Reserves, moving back and forth between the world of the military and a very liberal school where students raised our own food on a college farm.
I've written three screenplays and directed several short films and commercials. I'm a big fan of directors like Steven Soderbergh, Michael Mann, Alfonso Cueron and James Cameron. If I could ever write dialogue half as good as David Mamet, I'd be quite happy.
In August 2013, I published Einstein Must Die!, and it held the #1 spot on Amazon's Steampunk category for three weeks. It currently has a 4.5 star rating on Amazon with 70 reviews.
My second novel, Lawgivers, is a response to the current state of the US, where the middle class seems increasingly marginalized.
I'm married and live with my wife and two children in Seattle, WA. We love to travel, especially to Cozumel, New Orleans, Europe and Whistler, BC.
