MY STORY

Behind the Words

I grew up as a nerd and I achieved nerdiness my whole life. From D&D to geophysics: nerd. From drawing spaceships to forming startups: nerd.

Fatherhood is the best job I ever had. I can't imagine a world without them.

Living with chronic illness is the hardest job I ever had, more arduous than stacking wood, researching in Antarctica, and teaching at Stanford. Writing Sci-Fi is my passion, a pursuit I intend to follow for decades to come.

My leap to sci-fi writing came after I fell ill with a neurological condition. At first, I wrote as a therapeutic outlet. Now I hope to make it a career.

YOUTH

Redwoods

I grew up with a deep appreciation for the outdoors. Surrounded by the peaceful setting of a redwood forest, I enjoyed long periods of time to use my imagination. Reading, D&D, and the nature. What could be better?
