My writing credits include 3 short stories to Pocket Book anthologies, a story in Chimeraworld 3 and a semi-finalist award from the Writers of the Future contest. I worked for two and a half years for the World Health Organization before completing an MBA in Marketing and Finance at Cornell University. I went on to have a twenty year career in the Internet industry, but I never stopped writing fiction.
Like most writers I have had a variety of positions which prove useful in writing thrillers. I’ve worked for the Department of Defense, two top colleges (one a world reknown technological institute); several non-profits and for profits and a variety of internet startups. I founded my own Internet company, which was acquired by an Internet Service Provider. Along the way I became fluent in German and do well with my tourist French and high school Spanish. I regularly give talks to national conferences on Web development and online marketing.
I am currently pursuing my life-long goal of writing full-time and pursuing my new hobby: computer forensics – a useful knowledge base for my technology thrillers.
