About Me

First and foremost, I am a writer. I love the art of the written word. I have more respect for it than most people. 

I endeavor to help others develop and become the leaders of tomorrow. I prefer the role of mentoring upcoming generations, as they are some of the most innovative minds our species has ever produced.

I thrive on simple and effective workflows, whether it be guiding your latest product’s branding or designing your website. I’m a firm believer of effective, yet creative, design.

I’m a geek at heart. I love curling up on the couch and watching the same genre shows over and over, reading old SF&F novels again and again. I’ve been known to hit up a comic-con, play a board game, or trade some really bad sketches with other nerds over a beer. 

I just a guy, looking for something interesting to do so the world doesn’t get dull.

Do you have a project you think I can help you with? I’m always looking for (paid) opportunities for new, interesting work that falls in my wheelhouse of experience.
