About Me

I am a science fiction writer, and I live with 2 roommates in weird and wonderful Los Angeles, California. I like being outdoors and spend a lot of time hiking and camping around California. And I love to hear people's stories.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I have hosted or been hosted by at least a hundred people all over the world. I love organic interaction and sharing stories.


Science fiction. The near future. Culture and globalization. Evolution. Economics and global politics. Indigenous groups and social paradigms. China.

Most everything, when it comes down to it.

Music, Movies, and Books

Books. Can we talk about books? I am infatuated with books. Storyline. Arc. My first idols were Milan Kundera and Italo Calvino. Then in early SciFi Arthur C. Clarke, of course, and Octavia Butler.

Ray Bradbury. William Gibson. Neal Stephenson. China Mieville. These are my rock star gods, but I read anything and everything, and would love to know what you read.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I once spent three months studying frogs in the Upper Amazon of Ecuador.
