Writer Bio

Started out as a news writer for Cable News Network. Currently one of the top design writers on Medium. Dreaming of becoming a published author of speculative fiction.

Writing Style

I start with the story and listen to what it tells me about its preferred style. Others have told me much of what I write sounds like oral storytelling.

Writing Goal

My goal is to become a published author of speculative fiction. (I've previously published primarily nonfiction.) Plans for this summer include submitting already-written stories for publication and to write at least one more.
