Where am I from?

I am from New England! Born in New Hampshire, but lived most my life in a very rural part of Vermont. In 2001, my wife and I moved to North Carolina and have been here ever since. Currently, we live in a small home within walking distance of downtown Durham, NC.

I am a writer.

I started writing stories in crayon when I was a kid, but then realized pencils (with their erasers) were much more forgiving, so I made friends with them. Eventually, I discovered my mom’s electric typewriter and fell in love with it’s ability to keep up with the ideas in my head. Since then, a keyboard has always been in my possession. I’ve spent a lot of time writing long-form fiction (scifi, fantasy, horror, in no particular order). While I am drawn to telling long tales, I’ve also found immense pleasure in writing essays, collaborating with friends on shared ideas, short stories, and the occasional horrendous poem.

On top everything listed above, I also enjoy blogging reviews of books, movies and technology (software/hardware). You can find all of that and other stuff that entertains me, on my blog right here on this site.

I am a frontend web developer and site administrator.

I make ideas, passions, and missions come to life on any screen you have in front of you! I am currently working at the Duke Clinical Research Institute administering their clinical trial sites and helping with front end design work when needed. I’ve spent a decent chunk of the last decade freelancing on my own and while that was super rewarding, it’s nice to be back working in a team again and utilizing my skills for the greater good.
