Growing up, I knew I wanted to be either a LEGO master builder or an English teacher (like Robin Williams in Dead Poets Society). Due to silly little things like money, I opted to do something completely different. I now work for a major telecommunications company as a product marketing manager and moonlight as an author of speculative fiction (mostly fantasy) and quirky poetry that’s from the heart.

Though a native of North Carolina, having lived along its coastline and its majestic mountain peaks, I now live in the urban jungles of Atlanta with my southern belle of a wife, our trombone playing son and our catnip-crazy keyboard warmer cat. I’m a member of the Atlanta Writers Club and enjoy attending writing conferences, sci-fi conventions, and renaissance festivals.

When I’m not writing or hanging out at Starbucks (yes, I’m that guy!), I’m arms deep in LEGO bricks, reading books from my never-ending TBR list, and drinking abnormal amounts of tea (both hot and cold). I’ve also been known to conduct invisible orchestras while listening to music, wield lightsabers when the lights go out and perhaps spend far too much time at the beach (if there’s really such a thing as too much time).
