Trained as a mechanical draftsman, I worked designing furniture. For the last twenty years, I have worked in the flexographic printing industry.
In my free time I enjoy drawing and sculpting, both clay and stone. I am a voracious reader who loves anything with a unique twist. From time to time I build medievel weapons of mass destruction to bug my neighbors. Few things are more beautiful than a trebuchet in motion.
My major literary influences are Edgar Rice Burroughs, Dorothy Parker, Philip K Dick, Arthur C Clark, and Fredric Brown.
