and dabbled in even more. (Flintknapping, I’m looking at you.)

Once upon a time, I was a professional performer,
featuring (but not limited to) such far-ranging disciplines as opera and jazz vocal performance, to classical and Middle Eastern dance, from Shakespearean theatre, to Celtic and Middle Eastern percussion.

I have sold a few short stories, and written several books. Genres include fantasy, horror, romance, historical, and any blends of those four.

My university degree was individually constructed to provide a solid arts and sciences platform, and a broad, interlocking education wherein any piece would support another.

Degree work includes:
Theatrical Design
Medieval Studies (centered on languages)
Linguistics
Experimental Archaeology
Plant Biology
Art History
Museum Exhibit Design
