I was born and raised in Oregon, Grants Pass and then later, before high school I was in the Ashland-Medford area . I had taken up programming early in my childhood , along with music, playing guitar and singing ( sort of ) . I had started working in restaurants when I was fifteen, and had found myself cooking a year later.
In high school, I wanted to be a game developer. I was unable to perfect the skill of calculus , and I could only handle so much code, so I sort of left it behind. Later, picking up coding again , but for freelance web development, I finally started taking work while cooking full time when I was twenty three.
My first son was born in 2003, and in 2005 my first daughter was born. I wasn’t a normal person, so you could always find me at home taking care of the kids and working on the computer. Before the kids were born and after, I had always had ambitions greater than myself. Playing role playing games, writing ideas and stories for games and video games, screenplays, etc,…. entrepreneurialism , and the pursuit of happiness was always a constant. I have always been a programmer , either by trade, or for hire. Being in front of a screen and keyboard has been a constant in my life. Still, the day job as a cook ( or night job, depending on the job ) has been just as constant.
Music and creativity is one of the most important things in my life, and something I believe as being part of the human spirit. In the recent years, beyond all of the analytical studies I do ( programming, markets, business, etc,.. ) writing has become a new found adventure for my creative self. First coming from a desire to write about the professional kitchen and my experiences there, came the realization that I truly want to write something fictional.
Life is an adventure, take flight.
