Puzzles, games, toys, and imaginative new worlds.
Hello internets! I’m a designer and writer with bold and unique visions of the future. I’m delighted by the positive responses my work has received, and I want to foster that connection with a wider audience. I’m looking forward to sharing my future stories as they come to fruition, but in the meantime, check out some of my featured publications and more personal blog posts below.
I am an industrial designer, inventor, and writer - a long time fan of science fiction, horror movies, and Japanese anime. A few years back, I published a novelty puzzle book with Quirk Books titled:
Tic-Tac-Tome - an automatic tic-tac-toe playing book
Storytelling and the creation of unique worlds has always been a passion of mine. I was one of the core members of the in-house design team at ThinkGeek during the height of their influence in the pop culture world.
Read on to learn more about my work and feel free to contact me.
I’d love to hear from you.
SHIFTER - a sci-fi adventure
In the bleak alternate near future New York of 2025, Ellen, an over-educated, under employed delivery girl gets pulled into the mob controlled underworld of illicit SHIFT racing in the twisted maze of subway tunnels beneath the city. SHIFT technology allows for objects to pass through solid matter.
In this future where, economic and environmental decline has worsened and the gap between rich and poor never been wider a single act of defiance against the corrupt protectionist thugs on her street leads down a path to understanding the nature of her city and its true masters.
Her experience joyriding in stolen cars as a teenager becomes extremely useful as she enters a racing league where various conflicting underworld factions recreate the bloody Roman Circus Maximus using high-tech miniaturized aircraft in the tunnels of the city. In these tight confines and absurd speeds crashing is just a matter of time, but the mysterious SHIFT technology re-purposed from military stealth aircraft can land you on the right side of the razors edge between life and death.
"I want to stay as close to the edge as I can without going over. Out on the edge you see all kinds of things you can't see from the center."
