author2011_2I write non-creative fiction, play science and study cello, moonlighting as a spaceman when the need arises.

After growing up in Prince George, BC, I tried to resist the pressure to specialize and got a Bachelor of Science with a Joint Major in Chemistry and Physics. I went on to shoot tiny targets with massive lasers and snagged–or was snagged by–a Master’s Degree in Electrical Engineering.

Now working as an R&D Engineer, I spend my working hours making and breaking new concepts and ideas, before going home to unleash my unfettered imagination in the world of creative writing. I live in Edmonton with a cello and a gnome painted like Super Mario. Just recently I’ve taken on the role of co-president of the Edmonton Writers Group, and have begun my Astro HAL campaign to do community outreach and collect votes in the Axe Apollo contest. You might see me around as Astro-HAL (or Astral HAL, I’m not picky).

You can find me on Facebook as Half Riesen, and see my Project 365 photo album here.
