I'm a science fiction and fantasy writer in Chicago grinding it out to make a living doing what I love: using my imagination to create offbeat tales of dynamic characters and exciting action.

I run a blog dedicated to chronicling my rise from Fiction Writing undergrad at Columbia College Chicago to nearly self-published author. I discuss the difficulties and joys of the writing process and the writing lifestyle. (Which are inarguably two separate sets of challenges!) You can read my posts here--->

As an artistic person, I need many outlets of expression so I also sketch and paint as life allows. I recently launched an Etsy store and blog featuring my work. You can browse and purchase my artwork here --->

I hope that you'll join me on my journey and share in the tales I weave. I'm just getting started. There are many more great things to come from my imagination and I plan to bestow them all in some form or another. You can also follow my antics on any of the social media sites listed above or contact me directly in a message.
