I’m a fiction writer with a love for fantasy and Sci-Fi stories in particular. I have credited roles in six notable video games to date. Currently, I’m working on my debut novel, The Call of the Corritor, a number of short stories, and a small adventure game called Unmasked.
I’m a firm believer in the transformative power of fictional stories; all stories are metaphors, and as such the best show us the author’s views on life. My stories revolve around the most powerful of cores – love – and often feature themes of family and finding purpose in life.
I love working with game developers to help craft the story, lore and characters for their games. I excel at creating sharp, witty dialogue, relatable characters and deep lore. Stories told within video games should feature clear character motivations which are challenged through conflict, meaningful choices, and conclude with satisfying resolutions.
If you choose to work with me, I will bring passion and professionalism to your project. But if you’d like to know more about the man behind the words, here’s a little Q&A.
