I wrote my first fantasy story when I was 5. The prose was… brilliant. The accompanying stick figure illustrations… breathtaking. The lack of complex vocabulary speak to our underlying condition… who am I kidding? It was awful. My mom refuses to destroy the only copy because it has “sentimental value.”

I have always loved fantastical stories of all kinds: fantasy, sci-fi, superheroes, whatever. If reading helps us escape the real world, I intend to go somewhere fun.

In 2017, I left my native California and moved to the Philippines to pursue my true love. It worked, and we are now happily married.

During my life, I have…

Myself in Japan during cherry blossom season, really as unbelievable as its reputation.

Lived in Japan for a year and a half.

This is what it looks like working as a software developer: one part computer monitors, one part nerf gun.

Developed software for a major empire you might have ordered eBooks from.

Just hanging out.

Taken up a real life sport something like having superpowers.

I love writing and reading because good stories hit the deep places of our hearts. For me, writing has always been more than a hobby: It’s a spiritual journey with Jesus. Enjoy my books as entertainment, and I hope that in some way, whatever your own journey in life, they encourage you.
