Just look at that dramatic and thought provoking pose.

I’ve spent the last 14 years working in advertising,
contracting, marketing, higher-ed, and in the world of
game publishing. My work has been featured in dozens
of online galleries, 2 “best-of” books, and 1 weird
European magazine. I’ve written 3 books for the
Kindle, I’ve managed projects in 5 states, I’ve
enjoyed an expansive career with art direction
and the web—and if I end this paragraph
with my signature, I’m pretty sure it’ll
look all smart and official.

In this twisted whirlwind of design subjectivity and debased Photoshopery, those of us who decide to call ourselves “artists” or whatever new "thought worker" title seems appropriate - Visual Lead, Web Designer, UX Ninja, Murderous Cut-Throat Art Czar - chances are you spend every day with Adobe Photoshop open on your computer.

I told a Creative Director once, "I think I may die with Photoshop open." He smiled, nodded, and we finished our espresso in silent contemplation.

Want more? Cool, then I’ve got an art book full of- hey, calm down. I was going to show you my art boo- hey just…just chill out, take a step back. It’s a 174 page extensive look at my career with the web, print, and other colorful miscellany. Simply email me hey- HEY, LET GO OF MY ARM. JUST EMAIL ME, OKAY? I’VE GOT TO GO IT WAS NICE MEETING YOU.

It’s only kinda fancy.

I grow ever-closer to growing a ponytail and having my wife introduce me at parties as "a novelist."

One book of essays and two science fiction novels down. Next: A bloody epic about moonshining-whale-slavers and how I overthrew the whole lot, alone, with my bare hands and an ivory comb given to me by the ghost of William Howard Taft.

Check em' out over on Amazon.
