Me, In Brief

I write fiction and earn money delivering freight around the United States in a flatbed semi-truck (which I also live out of most days).

Previously, I was a web designer, and before that, a strength coach.

I’ve tried to settle down but it doesn’t suit me. I prefer the life of a nomad. A hunter-gatherer, not a farmer. An artist, not a conformist.

I value the mobility afforded by minimalism over the illusory comforts of owning too many things.

Philosophically speaking, I’m equal parts Taoist, Stoic, and whatever adherents of Robert Pirsig’s Metaphysics of Quality call themselves. But fuck labels.

When I’m not driving, I’m writing. When I’m not reading, I’m hiking.

Beyond these, I enjoy standup comedy, visiting museums, and watching mixed martial arts. Plus coffee. Lots of coffee. And the occasional glass of wine.
