About Me

On occasion I've been a toy store sales representative, a plumber's apprentice, a web designer, a spotlight operator, a production artist, a pizza maker, and a student, but I prefer coaxing language into pleasing arrangements more than any of these. I make rather good sandwiches, however, and my chili recipe gets appreciative nods from friends.

Being inspired by such language-coaxers as Tolkien, Howard, Leiber and Gaiman, I aspire to bring heroic storytelling back to the forefront of fantasy fiction. I have short works published in the Northridge Review, Crack the Spine Literary Magazine, Kazka Press’s California Cantata, Literary Underground’s Unearthed Anthology, and Flame Tree Publishing's Chilling Horror Tales anthology. My story "Collections" earned an Honorable Mention in Glimmer Train's 2013 Short Story Award for New Writers, and appeared in Grim Corps Volume II. I am currently seeking representation for my novel A Son of Ashwind.

You can find me in Los Angeles with an inspirational wife and the ghosts of two cats.
