My parallel career in design and computers is the basis for my technology writing. I'm putting my love of movies and books to practical use in film and book reviews and am talking to the personalities in publishing and filmmaking as well as reporting on the art and business of both crafts.

other pieces of random creative thought. If you're curious about any of my
imaginative, creative or fiction writing, contact me.
