Along the way, he worked as a busboy, bartender, Sunday school teacher, toymaker, canvasser, ship’s cook, voice actor, tour guide, freelance journalist and failed novelist. A graduate of Northwestern University, he holds a B.A. in Sociology and History.

His fiction has appeared in Flash: The International Short Story Magazine, Entityy, and quite a few commercial websites that appreciate the anonymity of their ghost writers. He has also published a handful of e-books and the critically-unacclaimed superhero satire, Working Class Villain, or Mr. Big Stuff Loves Victoria Swine
