About Me

2

By day, I’m a digital marketer. By night, I write science fiction and fantasy. I’m currently publishing Astra Nulliusa web serial about a crew of would-be heroes just barely scraping by in a dangerous galaxy.

My work is fast-paced, fun, and unapologetically pulpy. My characters are hot messes just trying to get by in worlds that are spinning out of control. My current plan is to work toward becoming a hybrid author, with some stories available for free, some as self-published e-books, and some available through traditional publishers.
