I spent 8 years as a professional game journalist -- first at Game Informer, then freelancing around willy-nilly. I shipped 3 games at THQ, writing/designing/directing a trio of WWE video games.

My first novel is titles Still Man Fights, and it's available on Kindle or paperback at Amazon. I'm also a SAG-AFTRA union actor and an experienced stunt fighter.
