Hello Potential Patron!


I'm a writer of science fiction, fantasy, and horror, in both novel and short story lengths. I've been slinging words for over 10 years now. My passion is creating stories that give a deeper view of both ourselves and our world, and I love blending genres. Since the beginning of 2016, I've been a full time author. If you'd like to read some of my work, you can find it on my website. I'm also a digital artist and enjoy creating pieces to accompany my writing as well as stand alone. For my supporters here on Patreon, I love creating commissioned works.

Outside of writing, I'm an avid rock and alpine climber. I often find my passion for climbing bleeding into my essays and short stories. Much of my inspiration also comes from the year and a half my wife and I lived in a Honda Odyssey mini-van, traveling the USA and Canada. The experiences I had during that time made a huge impact on my life. I'm still learning and growing from them.

If you'd like to know more: ask me, check out my author page, or read an interview I did on Smashwords awhile back.




As an Author: I want to build a closer relationship with my readers. I'm the kind of person who would rather have a few close friends than a mass of acquaintances. I'm not looking to get famous, make six-figures a year, or have hardbacks sold in Barnes & Noble. I want to write novels and short stories my dear fans love, and make a livable wage to support myself while doing it. I feel partnering with Patrons will allow me to focus on my passion: creating engaging and compelling stories, essays, and art.

As a Reader: Now, more than ever, we are being told what media to consume via algorithms, search engines, and massive corporations. We've gotten away from the roots of art and creativity: the individual making it and the individual perceiving it. The voices of small creative people are being drown out and there is no partnership. So here is a chance to support a creative individual, receive tangible results (See the sidebar for rewards!), and become central to something greater than the sum of its parts. You'll see your funding going to a person, instead of a huge publishing house. You'll have both a voice and a part in my writing. You'll know you are enabling me, a creative person, to pursue my dreams.

I understand that for some people, becoming a Patron isn't the right option. If you fall into that category, you can still read my work on my website or Amazon. I definitely understand that decision. :-)




I encourage you to read some of my short stories, novel excerpts, or poetry. If you find yourself wanting more, than please, consider becoming a Patron. I think you'll enjoy what I have to offer.

Not everyone has disposable income to spend on entertainment. I've been in that place several times in my life. If you really love my work, and it would be cost prohibitive to become a Patron, please get in contact with me. I'd love to send you some stories!

I know there are tons of choices when it comes to entertainment and media, so I appreciate all the love and support of my fans. Without you, I couldn't—and wouldn't—be doing this. It really is a partnership. Thanks for your time and support and I look forward to hearing from you soon!

Cheers!
