First and foremost -- I live in the ATX, or Austin, TX for the suckers at home. While most people will extoll the virtues of their home city or town, in my case, it's true.

I was born in Dallas and grew up in the Metroplex, escaping to Austin on April 29th, 1999. Don't get me wrong, I'm a city boy, I just like the city to be a bit under 1 million people. In Austin, you still run into people you know all over the place, from the Barton Creek Greenbelt to the Austin City Limits Music Festival.

I've been writing seriously for about five years, basically since I discovered the Online Writing Workshop for Science Fiction and Fantasy. Using this method of critiquing and being critiqued has taught me a tremendous amount about what it takes to be a well rounded writer.

My writing goal for 2007 is to write a Story a Week -- 52 weeks, 52 stories (a methodology preached by jaylake). I'm documenting my efforts on my website, and here on the blog.

That should keep me busy. Especially when you add my slush reading duties for The Town Drunk. You can read about my experiences in the slushpile on this blog or over at thetowndrunk, or at my website's Slushmonkey page.

I also enjoy taking photos. Check out some photos I've taken of Mexican free-tailed bats by clicking here.
