Welcome to my official author website. I have many creative passions, and storytelling is one of them. It began early in school when creative writing inspired the writer within me. Then the dramatic arts which lead me to become a trained actor in film, television, and theatre. In the early 2000s, I ventured into screenwriting, and my first script, The Black Dahlia Mystery, garnered me literary management. During those few years, I wrote four scripts during the most difficult time for a screenwriter—the early post 9/11 years when all movies had to be written safe: no explosions, terrorism, hijackings, or any kind of violence imaginable. But two of my screenplays written during that time broke the Hollywood rules as I felt their stories will one day be told at a later time in the future—and that time is now. And those former works are still available and showcased in the "Screenplays" section below. And to date, I have not written feature-length screenplays since, but I have returned to writing short scripts as of recently.
My current project is ASTRONOKAI, my sci-fi debut novel published by BANDOLEER PRESS. When not writing, I dabble in graphic design, where my education resides, and I'm also a photographer as photography is my true passion. Currently, I'm writing the sequel, ASTRONOKAI: The Days of Somber War, which will be published late 2021 or 2022.
I'm a native of Seattle, Washington, and still reside in the area. I love science fiction and fantasy, true-crime, video games, and love working out in virtual reality with my Oculus Quest.

After the failure of global peace, and the disbandment of NATO allies, the governments of many nations clash, resulting in a worldwide nuclear war.
As the global crisis escalates, American Astronaut Kyle Gannon awaits his lifelong dream of a mission to Mars while in hiberstasis for a routine test launch. But unbeknownst to him, his dream becomes a nightmare when SpaceX launches Gannon at the onset of the nuclear strike, sending him light years into outer space. Seven years and one day later, his space capsule arrives at its galactic destination.
Rescued by the Akryllians—humanoid aliens in the Astronokai galaxy, he becomes a strong ally in their interplanetary, galactic war against the evil Skrayth regime. But upon the discovery of an ancient battle sword, Gannon learns he is destined to be there—and must try to stop a cataclysmic event, reminiscent of earth’s fate.
