Welcome to my Author’s Page
I’ve been a Webmaster, Author, Ordained Minister, Orderly at a psychiatric hospital, Chief Technology Officer, UX Director, Game Designer, Father, Husband, and Cleaner for the Illuminati. Ok, maybe not that last one.
I’ve been writing professionally since 1991, although my first “real” publication was when I was 13. It was for a magazine contest in a magazine called “Popcorn.” The story had to have something to do with the metric system, so I wrote a horrible little piece about the Egyptians learning the metric system from alien time travelers. It read like a kid wrote it. Still, I won first place.
I’ve worked in IT since 1998, starting as a Webmaster for Virginia Interactive. We pioneered eGovernment with NIC Inc. It was cool.
It’s hard to say if I’m a writer who knows UX, or a UX guy who can write. I enjoy both pursuits. I also enjoy games, both traditional and digital, even though my coordination makes me horrible at shooters. I think play is one of the most important things an adult can do. Next to reading, of course.
In every real man a child is hidden that wants to play.
