“Origin stories help define us (a person, a marriage, a nation, a species). They are the starting points in our trajectory. But their usefulness decays over time. Origin stories need updated and re-written to fit with new trajectories (think Adam & Eve, or the founders of the U.S., stories that were once useful to understanding who we are, but now carry a taint/decay with them).”

What do you do?

I write novels, usually in the nebulous space between literary and speculative fiction, and build web applications.


I find tremendous joy in the creation process, whether I'm telling stories or making software.

What should we read?
