I'm a writer, web designer, sometimes artist and generally groovy guy at large. I earned a Master's degree in journalism from Kent State University and have been professionally writing and designing web sites for more than 20 years.

For four years I wrote a video game column for the Cincinnati Enquirer's weekly street magazine, CiN Weekly, called "Player1" (until that publication's demise).
