Inspirational Quote

I’ve studied now, Philosophy

From end to end, with labour keen
And here, poor fool! with all my lore
I stand no wiser than before.

Brief Biography

I’ve lived in eastern Massachusetts for most of my life, and came to Vermont five years ago to attend graduate school. Though I’ll always be a Boston kid at heart, I’m overjoyed to call the Green Mountain state home. I’ve made a tremendous amount of lifelong friends during my short time here, and am still astonished to have found such an incredible community as Vermont Commons. I’m a lover of narratives of all kinds, and in my free time I can usually be found lost in another world – either in a book, a game, or my own creative work. My current projects include a cyberpunk/fantasy epic series, a coming-of-age play, a vampire horror/comedy novel, a classic western, and various tabletop gaming campaigns.

I live in Shelburne with my incredible partner, Melissa.
