I’m a writer in the Washington, DC area. I hold a master’s degree in technical communication and rhetoric. I’m also a Christian, a husband, and a dad.
At my day job I document software products that help people save energy. In my spare time I read books and work on various fiction projects, including a novel and several short stories. I also have a handful of non-fiction projects in the works: essays, trade magazine articles, blog posts. When I’m not writing, I’m probably reading one of the books on my massive reading list.
I like talking about writing, literature, history, rhetoric, technology, theology, and current events. I also like board games and video games (though I rarely have time for the latter these days). Much of what I write on this blog will fall into one of those categories. If you ever have a question about anything I write, leave a comment or drop me a line.

Everything in the list below is non-fiction. Some day I hope to update it with fiction.
