about the author.


I know what you’re thinking: what’s a guy like me doing with a blog like this? Well, I’d be lying if I said I hadn’t wondered the same thing. But these things all start the same, don’t they? A charming phrase here, a clever line there–then one day you wake up and find out you’re a writer.

See what I did there? I was paying homage to detective stories. That’s the kind of witty intertextual wordplay you can expect around here.

Who am I? Just a guy who writes, I guess. I tried out author for awhile but I’d rather be known as a writer. There’s a little more room to play jazz with that moniker. What do I write? Quite the spread actually. I’ve written short stories, movie reviews, comedy, poetry, fantasy, radio spots, screenplays, menus…but mostly, I like swords and robots. On average, I like to get 1.5 robots in everything I write.

I love movies and I’ve seen way too many of them. I’ve logged a total of 7 years working at video stores. If you want to make this blog into a drinking game, take a shot every time I quote a film.

I co-host a podcast with my cousin. You know, because there’s not enough of those in the world.

I also love books, which is probably why I wrote one. And it’s probably why I try to write another one everyday.

This blog is about writing, more or less. Like how Ghostbusters is a horror movie. It’s also about my adventures, which is a nice way of saying ‘daily struggle.’  I’m not sure what brought you here, but I think it’s awesome that you are. If I knew you were coming, I’d have put out some snacks. I guess you’ll just have to settle for the movie quotes.
