Welcome! This blog is a little thing I put together to talk about my experiences as a writer and artist. Most of what I post here relates to my fiction writing, specifically my young adult, high fantasy trilogy, The Legend of Light, but I also drop by from time to time to express some thoughts on what catches my interests in the fields of pop culture and other entertainment mediums.
As a writer, I’m always looking for new ideas and for other works of media to inspire me, so I spend plenty of my spare time reading fiction, watching movies, and playing lots of video games. I’m a complete action/adventure buff, no matter the genre — fantasy, sci-fi, historical, you name it. That translates to my own fiction creations, just about all of which feature some journey where there’s a diverse set of characters, exciting conflicts, and out-of-this-world locations.
I’m 31 years old, proudly born and still living in Buffalo, New York. I’ve grown up in this great city, even staying home for my college years. I graduated from Buffalo State College with my degree in Journalism. My love of writing goes well beyond fiction; I’ve spent several years as a freelance journalist covering video games, specifically The Legend of Zelda and everything else about the company Nintendo. I spent more than eight years covering professional and international hockey, having been a credentialed reporter for the NHL’s Buffalo Sabres, the AHL’s Rochester Americans, and USA Hockey.
Currently, I serve as the Assistant Director for the Features team at Zelda Universe, where I focus on in-depth editorials that analyze and explore The Legend of Zelda franchise as well as all Nintendo video games. I’m also studying to be a comic book artist, with the goal to someday draw my own comic series!
