I originally haled from Chicago, enjoyed a 21-year vacation in South Florida, and now reside in Madison, Wisconsin, with my wife, Melissa, and two teenage daughters. I recently completed the first novel, Halfway to the Apocalypse, in my 11:34 series. While my heart has enjoyed "geeking out" the past three decades in Information Technology, my soul yearns for a career as an author. I am a member of the Wisconsin Writer’s Association. I have a degree in Web Technologies, attended Florida Culinary Institute, and honed my writing skills at New York’s Gotham Writer’s Workshop.
