Seattle, Washington, United States
I’m a husband, a father, an engineer since I was about five years old, and an author of science fiction. I’m a native-born American who has lived in the South, several parts of California, and several parts of Washington State. I now live and work in the Seattle area with my family.
The science fiction and fantasy world has been slowly decaying in recent decades, becoming a repository for negativity, monsters, and scary and unlikely future scenarios. Setting fantasy aside for now (which is not so much my thing), I have strong feelings about designing the future by showing people what can be. I’ve read science fiction for pleasure and escape since I learned to read. This has shown me a future with great opportunities, eliminating the bullshit and pain that many people must suffer with today from economic hardship, oppression, disease, ignorance, and intolerance. Humanity is full of cultures, races, creeds, and ideas — most of which can broaden and enrich all of our minds if we let them.
I envision a future that is inclusive, wealthy for the whole of society, and enthusiastically exploring and colonizing many worlds in addition to the one we were born on. I do what I can to realize this vision by portraying it in my stories.
