I was born in Cincinnati, Ohio, and attended Walnut Hills High School, graduating in the spring of 1999. I moved to Pittsburgh later that same year, attending Point Park College until 2002, when I transferred to the University of Pittsburgh. I graduated from Pitt in April of 2004 with a B.A. in English Writing. Since then, I have spent time in Los Angeles, New York, Cincinnati, Pittsburgh, and Myrtle Beach, and I currently reside in Rochester, New York. I have written several novels, a screenplay, a comic book series, and many short stories and essays. My stories have been featured in a wide variety of different publications, both online and in print, in the U.S. and abroad.
My novels Transitional Period, The Woods, Hell To Pay, and Rogue: Time Out of Mind are available on Amazon for Kindle and in print-on-demand format. Also available are the short story collections A Long, Slow Burn and Other Stories, the memoir You Never Know Who’s Crazy, and the essay collection Driving Fast in the Slow Lane. My latest is the collection of horror short stories Fear the Darkness, Shun the Light.
Since 2017, I’ve transitioned into working as a freelance writer. I’ve been focused on such things as paid blog and article writing, editorial work, and general content creation for a variety of clients. I’m available for hire through the form on the website’s Contact section.
