I'm a web developer with a master's in linguistics who writes weird stories.

My favorite genre to read and write is dreampunk―an ultra-weird surrealist stew of science fiction, fantasy, and horror. I'm drawn toward abnormal psychology and alternative modes of communication, probably because I grew up with a severely autistic younger brother.

My biggest literary influence is Philip K. Dick, though my writing style tends more toward Neil Gaiman. I'm currently seeking a literary agent to get my work published and eventually turned into movies. After that, I'd say games, comics, toys, theme parks... all that good stuff.

"What sane person could live in this world and not be crazy?" ―Ursula K. Le Guin

"Just because something bears the aspect of the inevitable one should not, therefore, go along willingly with it." ―Philip K. Dick
