I'm a new author writing mostly hard-scifi in the near future, with the occasional side quest into far distant realms. Most of all I try to make my writing fun and funny.
During the day I work at Mozilla (the makers of Firefox) on Virtual and Augmented Reality standards and tools, and trying to ensure this new technology is used well and thoughtfully. Basically my job is to make sure Black Mirror doesn't become real.
I live in sunny Eugene Oregon with my wife, 8 year old son, and two cats. Being the father of a current child gives me unusual insight into the future. For example, in the future we will all have our own Youtube channel and live sporting events will be replaced by unboxing videos. Terrifying!
