Welcome to my little corner of the interwebs. I am an independent researcher, web developer, and foremost, a storyteller. This site is home to my fiction and the centerpoint of a discussion at the crossroads of narrative identity, mixed-media interactive content, and innovative stories.
Stories. I am
an author of (mostly) speculative fiction. Steampunk, Fairy tales, epic sci-fi, and
dreamworlds. My storytelling often goes beyond words alone (though I really love
words) into mixed-media,
My Books: Allyson Darke, Phantom Hearts, Captured, More.
Every week, just for fun, I release a new chapter to these ongoing serial stories.
A Wolf of Steam and Fire:
Lost in the Twilight Jungle on her first mission for the Ilsan Army, sixteen-year-old Marissa Cabbot uncovers a dangerous, outlawed majickal secret. One that only she can destroy, if it doesn't eat away her sanity first.
Story Craft. In preschool,
when most kids wanted to be a doctor or fireman, I wanted to be the guy who made Disney movies. I

about the heart of stories because "there is no joy like the simple joy of a tale well told."

I believe that stories can be used to teach, heal, and transform lives. With
graduate degrees in Anthropology and Educational Psychology, I conduct
research into narrative identity, educational storytelling,
and human-social-story interaction.

Stories are changing. The web is changing. Research is changing. This is my
discussion on how to push content, stories, and curriculum forward. From virtual
reality to crowdfunding; 3D printing to an mmirevolution.
