Hello. You have wandered onto my profile. First off, I would like to apologize; I'm sure you had someplace better to be.

Well... as unfortunate as it is, you're here now, so why don't you have a look around? You'll notice the fine Baroque architecture- those are authentic, period tapestries. Please don't touch. You might also notice the crystal chandeliers and some of the splendid mosaics, hand assembled by some of the finest Italian artisans. Don't touch that either. To your right you might see the stained glass window with stone columns taken from Constantinople during the siege of 1453. For heaven's sake, don't touch it.

Perhaps you didn't intend to arrive here, but it's not too bad, right? You can get rather comfortable here. There's a bowling alley in the basement and a theater just down the hall over there. There is a butler to attend to any further needs you may have. If you truly feel like you need to, you may touch him.

But now that you're here, you'll never escape. If you try, I'll never give you the antidote.


Here is a sort of guide to all of my stories thus far. You may find them at the bottom of the page. Yes, they're there. You just have to believe.

Flicker: My first completely independent short story (all of the rest have been for school assignments). It borrows details and ideas from Inception, The Matrix, and the popular Superman story For the Man Who Has Everything. Hopefully it's not too similar to any of them. Plot-wise, I left it very open on purpose. It's up to you to decide who is right, wrong, and insane. Have fun ;)

Sprint: A story that I wrote in about half an hour that sort of came out of nowhere. Heavily inspired by the music video for The Island: Part 1 by Pendulum and those stupid dreams that keep you awake for hours and hours when all you want to do is sleep. You know the ones.

Sprint reviews
They wake up in a strange, empty world, and when they see someone else, all they can do is chase after them. This mysterious running figure seems to be their only hope, but by the time they realize they are caught in a much larger trap, it will be far too late for them to do anything but keep running.

Flicker reviews
A long time ago, he had told me about the signs. The strange little mistakes that everyone else would miss. He said they were fluctuations, malfunctions. The world was broken. I didn't believe him. But now I see them too, and I have to decide whether he was right, or I'm insane. There's only one way to escape a prison of the mind.
