After getting degrees in physics/math (University of Connecticut and Cornell) and working in the computer industry as an A.I. specialist, I turned to writing. I'm a multi-published novelist and have published a half-dozen nonfiction books before moving into screenwriting. I'm currently in Screenwriting U's Master Screenwriter Certificate program. I've had one script reach the finals and another the quarter-finals in major contests. My specialty is writing SF thrillers, often with occasional touches of comedy.
