Reading: I’ve been a voracious reader most of my life and enjoy reading primarily Science Fiction and professional Non-fiction on my Kindle when I’m not being crazy with or reading to my children. I grew up and was inspired by the worlds of Issac Asimov, David Brin, Greg Bear, and others. Foundation and “the Stone” are my jam. I’m also inspired by worlds created by newer writers like John Scalzi, High Howey, J. K. Rowling, William Gibson, Neal Stephenson, and more. There are so many great authors out there. It’s a great time to be a reader.

Writing: For people who are interested in reading some random stories and thought exercises I’ve put together while exploring the craft of creative writing, check out my stories page in that side navigation. I can’t promise the next great American short story yet but I think I’m getting better. I’ve also recently finished writing a novel that I hope to publish in the next few months. I’m editing it now and planning to try to find some beta readers soon.

Projects:
