I have contributed to sites like Techopedia, The Hard Times and Funny or Die. I write about tech (which is short for "technology") and sometimes music, MMA and other things. I try to write self-deprecating comedy but suck at it. I have a BFA degree in Creative Writing from Chapman University and an MFA degree from Art Center College of Design (where I wrote my thesis paper on Monomyth story structure in the cult film, The Room).
I have written for various marketing campaigns and do a lot of copywriting. My niches include (but are not limited to) digital marketing, XaaS and mobile applications.
