I was born, raised and still reside in St. Louis, Missouri. I have been writing since I was in my single digits. My recent short story, "The Fanboy" was a top-10 winner (out of 100) in the 78th Annual Writer's Digest Writing Competition under the Genre Short Story category. I currently work at Philibert Security Systems, Inc. (my old man's company) in administration, as well as "editor-in-chief" of our company newsletter, and I am also currently writing several short stories and novellas and have a list of novel ideas. Needless to say, I can be a rather busy fellow.
