I'm a Watty-winning writer with degrees in linguistics who codes for a living. I also make art from time to time.

My biggest literary influence is Philip K. Dick, though my writing style tends more toward Neil Gaiman. I indulge in a bit of genre hopping, but my specialty is a subversive brand of surreal science fantasy known as "dreampunk."

"I want to stand as close to the edge as I can without going over. Out on the edge you see all kinds of things you can't see from the center." ―Kurt Vonnegut Jr.

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

"The answer is dreams. Dreaming on and on. Entering the world of dreams and never coming out. Living in dreams for the rest of time." ―Haruki Murakami
