Author has written 27 stories for Horror, Fantasy, Thriller, General, Supernatural, Fantasy, and Sci-Fi.

I am male and, as of 2009, I am 20 years old and attending college in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA. My career choice is a filmmaker (thus explaining my draw to description and imagery), but when I am not in the vicinity of a video camera or editing software, I can be found trying to form (what I hope to be) sentences.

I do not often revise my work, so most of my stories will not be in perfect fashion. I hope my work is enjoyed, nonetheless. If you can, please review what of mine you have read and leave your most brutal comments. Reviews and comments really help motivate me. For all of you who leave reviews, I thank you.

I have found my recent stories to be unsatisfactory and, instead of putting them out as stories, I shall try to film-ify them.

Peace :)
