"A writer only begins a book. A reader finishes it." — Samuel Johnson I was a bookworm as a kid and always dreamed of writing the kinds of books that I would love to read. I studied engineering in college because I thought it was the next best thing to magic. Now I live and work as a UI/UX designer in the San Francisco Bay Area, immersed in the startup culture that produces many of the real-world wizards that inspired my debut novel, Realms Unreel. I'm currently collaborating on an illustrated version of Realms Unreel with my friend Ian Steplowski, an artist and character modeler at Pixar. We recently raising money for the first print run of the illustrated book on Kickstarter.In addition to working on the illustrated version of Realms Unreel, I'm also writing a companion volume to Realms Unreel entitled Bonds Endure.
