About Me

Experience

I am a freelance writer with over ten years of experience. My areas of interest include comics, retro video games, and technology. I have written about all of these things and many others ranging from long-form articles about politics to buying guides about camping equipment.

History 

My writing career started at my local newspaper while studying Journalism in college. Music and local news were the main focus of my writing but then my life took an unexpected turn.

After becoming the proud father of a beautiful baby girl in 2008, I mainly engaged in writing for pleasure. Though I only wrote sporadically during those first years of fatherhood, I started to more seriously dedicate myself to the craft in 2015. That is when I started my novel, which I am still finalizing. In 2016 I set up a website and started writing more frequently. Since then I have written for Vocal and GoCollect, and also on my personal blog.

Versatility

Adaptability is the key word I like to use when describing myself as a writer. I love to learn about new things, so research and new topics are exciting for me. Whether it's coffee, camping, or comics, I enjoy putting together articles about a variety of topics.
