I  am the author of Thirteen Discs and The Enormous Network and Other Stories.

I was born in Kansas, grew up in Alexandria, Virginia, and studied history at the University of Vermont. I worked in testing and quality assurance on software development teams in Silicon Valley from 1985 until 2010. I currently work for a Swiss medical devices company.

I live with my wife (Annie) and our three children (Kieran, Andre, and Catherine) in Montpellier, France.
