Ever since I can remember, I have had a passion for writing. I would sit at the kitchen table pecking away on my parent’s electric typewriter as it hummed along, bored, I’m sure, in the background. My first story involved a sick child, a mean landlord, the President of the United States (a fictionalized version) saving the day with a puppy, fifty US dollars, and a stern lecture to the landlord.
Since that time, I have written such short stories as Stanley Usher, Weathering the Storm, and Warren County Truck Number Five; as well I have co-written a feature screenplay and have made it to the semi-finals of ScreenCraft’s Short Screenplay Competition in 2015 and 2016 (we’ll see what happens in 2017).
Most recently I have been fascinated with writers from the perspective of their writing journey. As it so happens, I am also a voice actor, so with the encouragements of friends and family, I created and host the WriteBoom! podcast. Every week, I am lucky enough to get to speak with some of the best writers of today, in all genres and mediums, hoping that their journeys inspire my listeners to continue their journeys. Maybe even begin from scratch. Either way, it’s incredibly exciting and I am lucky to be able to do what I do.
I have lived in Montreal, Vancouver, Phoenix, and New Hampshire throughout my life, but I call Upstate New York home, with my wife and daughter. If you’d like to contact me, go here — I’d love to hear from you!
Now: go write!
