Writer, designer & musician. Has written a few short stories & two novels. Is an aficionado of whiskey & sneakers. Is not a fan of bodice rippers or letters that begin with Dear Penthouse, or Dear John. Likes his pulp fiction well done & his literature raw & bloody. Constantly amazed at how truth is stranger than fiction. Inspired by William Gibson, Lydia Mullet, James Ellroy, Michael Ondaatje & Allan Moore—not in any particular order. And lastly, he is a voracious letter writer, which is a dying art.
