I've been writing since the third grade. My first story was about a park ranger that broke up a poaching ring. I had big ideas as a kid. It's only mildly terrible, and I may post it if I can find it.
Today I write science fiction and fantasy. Most of the things I write start out as stories about my life. The fictional version turns left or right at reality. Either for funsies or to protect those I love.
Once upon a time I was a lighting designer. Now I'm theatre adjacent working for a sound company. I also care for my ninety-three year old grandmother.
