I'm a web designer, programmer and journalist. I live with my wife Victoria near Washington, DC. My first novel, Infoquake, was released by Pyr (an imprint of Prometheus Books) in July 2006.

A quick bit about my book: Infoquake takes science fiction into alien territory: the corporate boardroom of the far future. It's a stunning trip through the trenches of a technological war fought with product demos, press releases, and sales pitches. The book has received rave reviews from Publishers Weekly ("bursting with invention and panache"), Library Journal ("belongs in most SF collections") and Barnes & Noble Explorations ("one of the most impressive SF debuts to come along in years"), as well as advance blurbs from Kate Elliott, Sean Williams, Chris Roberson, and Tobias Buckell.

Over the past ten years, I've programmed websites for the U.S. Army and the FBI, taught software to the U.S. Congress and the World Bank, written articles for the Washington Post and Baltimore Sun, and directed the marketing departments of biometric and e-commerce companies.
