About me

Gender MALE
Industry Publishing
Introduction I'm a reader, gamer, and writer of all things speculative. I was born and raised in the South Bronx, educated at a private college in northern Vermont, and work for a well-known legal and financial publisher in lower Manhattan. Currently I'm writing sci-fi short fiction on the side, with a paltry few paid publications under my belt. The idea for a far-future space opera novel is being tossed about in the back of my head as well. I'm excited by the possibilities!
Interests China, the Middle East, languages, travel, healthy living, anything sci-fi and fantasy related.
