About Me

I live in Troutdale, Oregon, a suburb of Portland. I'm currently working as a computer systems administrator for a manufacturing company in Vancouver and write only as a hobby. However, I've dreamed of becoming a professional author all along. I'm now working to make the dream a reality.

I work on my writing as often as I can. I've started submitting some stuff to local publications and could really use some advice on how to get published elsewhere. I also write movie reviews for BeyondHollywood.com, a site that fills in a need for decent coverage of the independent, foreign and horror genres. Oh, and I designed the site logo. Graphic design is something I've been doing since before there were computers. I actually still enjoy it.

The most important things in my life are my wife and daughters (and granddaughter). My true purpose is to be a better man, which means becoming a better husband and a better father/grandfather. When I leave, I intend to leave behind a better world. It's worth saving and, though I'm only one man, I'm still going to try.

If you wish to add me to your friends list I want to know why, first. It's only fair. I love meeting new people so tell me a little about yourself and why you're interested in being my friend. Friends know each other, right? Otherwise, I've got a strangers list and there's no link for that.

Curious about how my lovely wife and I met? Check out the first chapter of her book, Godzilla And Rodan Fistfight In Downtown Tokyo.



"Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover."

- Samuel Langhorne Clemens, aka Mark Twain (1835 - 1910)


"Although the world is full of suffering, it is full also of the overcoming of it. My optimism, then, does not rest on the absence of evil, but on a glad belief in the preponderance of good and a willing effort always to cooperate with the good, that it may prevail. I try to increase the power God has given me to see the best in everything and every one, and make that Best a part of my life. "

- Helen Adams Keller (1880 - 1968)
