We are made of stories... As an author I explore the hidden, sacred and the profane, believing all who wander are not lost. I'm an avid gamer, activist, and writer. I write for a variety of publications from STIR Magazine in the UK to the Kitsap Sun in Washington. My afterword to BenBella Books science fiction classic The Sheep Look Up by John Brunner explores how sci-fi can reshape our assumptions about the world. In the book The Battle for Azeroth: Adventure, Alliance, and Addiction in the World of Warcraft I follow the trail of 'Chinese gold farmers' to uncover a global movement of hackers laundering virtual gold for millions in cold hard cash while exploiting the sweatshop labor of over a 100,000 Chinese gamers. My contributions to So Say We All - An Unauthorized Collection of Thoughts and Opinions on Battlestar Galactica looks at religion and politics in the SyFy channel's hit series.
