Entertaining and Empowering Through Storytelling
I grew up in Pennsylvania and moved to a farming town on California’s central coast during elementary school. I had my first taste of storytelling in junior high school with a small role-playing group and couldn’t get enough. However, I didn’t dabble at writing until much later.
At age 15, my parents shipped me kicking and screaming to England for the summer to work in a hotel on a crumbling cliff near an abandoned village. I had the best time of his life working the bar, scuba diving, filling tank, and falling in love with the head waitress who a few years later became my wife.
In addition to half a lifetime in the software development industry, making everything from 3-D games to mission-critical business applications to help cure cancer, I was also a Radiation Therapist for many years.
Eventually, my technical experience, medical skills, and lifelong fascination for science fiction became the ingredients for my book series, The Z-Tech Chronicles. The series combines elements of each into a fantastic contemporary tale of super-science, fantasy, and adventure, based in his Bay Area stomping grounds.
My short story “Once Upon a Nightwalker” was published in the Corporate Catharsis anthology, available from Paper Angel Press.
Writing is my passion, but I also love hiking the eastern Sierra Mountains with my family, PC gaming, and racing the occasional FPV drone.
