Who am I?

I'm an award winning artist, author and screenwriter who spends a lot of time in a fantasy world, writing, painting, and creating artistic what-nots to post everywhere I can.

I've dabbled in film making and some indie filmmakers and I have done a few short adaptions of my books. In this photo you see me at rehearsal at my fencing club while we were preparing the duel for Cassandra's Castle.

I'm a lover of the classics, both visual and literary. Prone to pick up a paperback over a digital copy. I believe a story should be good enough to hand down from one generation to the next.
