Write. Live. Scifi

Interstellar Spring

Monsters evolved on the terraformed worlds.
Meet the people who study them.


Growing up, I was always able to express myself most through the written word. I’m fortunate that I was able to translate this ability into a blossoming career as a professional writer. I always strive to learn and develop my literary style and voice, approaching every challenge I come across as an experience to grow and develop as a writer. That’s why, in addition to working on projects similar to those I have already completed, I also seek out new types of endeavors I have yet to encounter.

"Without change something sleeps inside us, and seldom awakens. The sleeper must awaken."

Past travel blogs

My darling wife, a stuffed bear and I intrepidly travelled through Europe on a shoe-string budget. 
Goats were milked, trains were missed, and former brothels were slept in. 
Rest assured shenanigans transpired in at least six countries.

The Bearded Kaiju chronicles my year as an english teacher in Hida-Takayama. I participated in bizarre festivals, and underwent surgery in a wild mountain town.
If you have ever wanted to teach abroad or explore Japan's hidden countryside this is the blog for you.
