I grew up in Victoria, British Columbia, Canada, the son of a Norwegian sea captain and a Mohawk legal professional. I lived in Japan from 1999 to 2008, where I worked as a Berlitz English instructor.
I hold a diploma in Foundation Visual Art and Design, and a diploma in Game Design from Vancouver Film School. I was a solo independent video game developer from 2010 to 2015, and shipped forty projects using the Unity game engine.
I wrote, produced, and performed 512 episodes of a live-broadcast video game news and reviews program on Twitch.tv from 2017 to 2020.
I am the author of the short story Parlow’s Choice, the novella Tale of the Madeus, the novel Ambia, and many works of poetry and short fiction. In 2023, I published a new written work, alongside an original digital artwork and audio recording, every day.
A two-time awardee of the Nora Mitchell Bursary, I am halfway through the final year of an undergraduate degree in creative writing at Vancouver Island University, thanks to the generous support of Grand River Post Secondary Education Office and the Canadian Government.
I live in Nanaimo, Canada, with my wife and our cat, Teto.
