I was born and raised in the San Francisco Bay Area. I have had sort of a crazy life and done a lot of travelling. I am an all-art-side-of-the-brain type of person, and I have no real life skills. But I do all kinds of art. My brain is a little bit like a crack-addicted monkey in a very small cage, so you might want to take a few steps back. I tend to throw ideas. This makes me eminently qualified to write humorous and exciting science fiction. Oh, and aliens are real. They just haven't found Earth in this dimension yet.
