I have been failing miserably at the craft that is writing since the ripe old age of five. It was then that I penned the tale of children, swamp beasts, and evil corporations threatening to build luxury hotels. Oh sure. I have written short stories like “Nebula” that go on to win awards. Or “Christmas Day” that won an Author Fest. Or “HeadSpace” that won a 24 Hour Film Fest. But awards do little more than offer you a trinket and a nice little pat on the back.
For me, writing is a journey. And really, I am just along for the ride. I have had over a hundred articles, reviews, devotionals, short stories, and poems published in over a dozen publications. I spent a year the OC Register as a Teen Movie Critic. I spent another year doing freelance writing for Renown Magazine and CM Central. I then spent three years of my life at Infuze Magazine as an entertainment journalist. I have written crazy comic strips like “Insanity 101.” Radio scripts that have made their way to broadcast. I wrote and directed my own silent film noir. Done work on a TV set. And I have even written a graphic novel script.
Writing novels is where my real passion is at. Entertaining people with stories that make you think, that engage both your brain and your heart, that always leave you wanting more. If I make you cry, or cringe, or leap for joy, then I’ve done my job. The readers. Like you. That’s who i work for. And I love it.
I spend my days working as an editor, proofreader, and fact checker. My evenings are spent as an author. I have several present projects:
- Entertaining Angels. More info soon. Est October 2017

I like reading, writing, biking, traveling, working out, disc golfing, martial arts, and board games. I am hoping to learn how to surf one day. I am a frequent visitor to my local GameStop, Barnes N Noble, and comic book store. I have an unhealthy obsession with collecting bust banks (see pic below). I love teaching writing and the bible. I hope to someday tackle writing scripts for a play and a video game. And lastly, I am blessed to be alive. I’m happily married and enjoying life.
