Welcome to my page, thanks for stopping by. Consider this a site a half-finished construction project on hold while we take care of other things. In the world of COVID, finishing the website is non-essential work.
I am interested in the fantasy genre, and want to explore themes, inspiration and motivations of past works here. Most of my writing here is with the goal of keeping myself getting words written. I also occasionally talk about my life as a new parent and the writing process as I go through it for the first time. I hope you find something interesting here!
I suppose I should be working, but I just can’t not write this.

I’ve been writing since I was in 7th grade, and I hope it’s only gotten better.

Besides writing and reading fantasy, I love hiking with my wife and dog. I enjoy video games, Seattle sports and craft beer as well!
