I live in downtown Seattle with my wife, Judy, one feline allergy bag and two of the most ridiculous five-pound dogs on the planet.

I earned an English degree from an excellent engineering school, where I was a DJ on KCPR and won first place in the university’s short story contest. Before graduating, my non-fiction work was published in national magazines such as Seventeen. I later worked as a video editor between marketing and post-production jobs at The Walt Disney Company and Warner Brothers, and have put my AV skills to good use helping to raise more than half a million dollars for the Eastside Legal Assistance Program in King County, Washington.
