making magic happen

I'm an artist, a writer, game designer, hiker, wine maker, socialist, and amateur historian.

My Story

One of my clearest memories as a child is of playing in my parents backyard by myself, inventing worlds and stories with G.I.Joe’s. I can practically smell the grass I used to make huts and picture in my head the dialogue I invented as I formed fluid narratives that continued form day to day. That urge to create and tell stories has been a driving force in all that I do, be it artistically or for my work.

This website reflects some of the storytelling I have done over the years. Art, articles, games, and even the code of the site make up a series of narratives. The site is essentially a series of experiments in design, writing, and art all filtered through my personal lens.

As I move through the second half of may life, I find myself more and more driven to get all of the ideas out of my head. I have more books I want to write, more games to design, more art to create, more places to photograph than ever before. I am filled with a purpose I didn't have as a younger creator and designer, and I think my best work is ahead of me.
