About Me:

I'm a writer first, and everything else is secondary. This site's purpose is to connect you to that writing, whether you are an editor looking for a freelancer to write about games and technology on your site (I write reviews, news and guides), or a friend or even a fan (it could happen) interested in my fiction endeavors. If the mood strikes me, I might even share a few opinions on other related things. Thanks for visiting, and I hope you find something of interest!

This might wind up being another one of those offers, but it might also be much, much more. That's if I can get enough people to participate all at once, and so here we are.

Site Relaunch
November 07, 2018

Hello there, theoretical reader! You're witnessing the first post on this domain in nearly two years, which follows intense development of a new custom CMS to put everything in order. What's with all the industry? It's simple: I'm trying to get back into the business of writing about games as a freelancer, after a lengthy period spent doing very little of that sort of thing. I figure having a portfolio and blog site that is in lean, mean fighting shape might give me a better chance at actually making that happen.
