Bio & Links to Stories
I’m a diverse writer with a cinematic flair living in the Pacific Northwest. I grew up in the middle of the Oregon sand dunes in a small Stephen King-esque town. I have a B.S. of Fine Arts from the University of Oregon and a J.D. from Lewis & Clark Law. My strongest literary influences are William S. Burroughs, Hunter S. Thompson, and Gumby. My favorite movie is Jeunet’s Amelie. My favorite television series is The X-Files. That said, Broad City is a close second.
Currently, I am shopping around Sitting with the Dead, a screenplay I co-wrote with the late comedic actor Ramsey Moore. My comic horror novel Machine Gun Vacation is forthcoming from Thunderdome Press. I recently teamed up with screenwriter Craig Walendziak to co-write a Lovecraftian horror movie.
