I grew up in Los Angeles, went to college in Maine, lived in Oakland, Philadelphia, and moved to Durham, NC in 2014. I have taught middle and high school science (biology, earth science, physics, environmental science, or whatever else we need) for fifteen years and have had parents complain that I’ve turned their children into Doctor Who addicts. I recently (mostly) left teaching to study transportation at NC State, working on everything from automated vehicles to school bus safety.

The geeky science nerd in me insists that my worlds have internal integrity, even if they’re full of rhino-bears and messages across time. The ten-year old boy in me who grew up stealing Tolkien, Le Guin, and McCaffrey books from his big sister’s bookshelf just wants characters and stories to fall in love with.

In my spare time, I listen to a lot of music, travel, watch baseball when I can, play with my dog and daughter, kayak, and go hiking (often rushing off the trail to write down ideas).  The Cordelian Chronicles was written half in Philadelphia and half in Big Bear Lake, California and revised in Durham, NC.
