I am an author, independent scholar, philosopher, and zenithist.
I write mostly literary philosophy and philosophical fiction, mixing philosophy into everything from satire to western. I count among my top philosophical influences Nietzsche, Leibniz, Olaf Stapledon, and William James.
I live with my wife and sunshine, Zuriel van Belle, and our miniature schnauzer, Nietzsche, in Milwaukie, Oregon.
Zuriel and I became a couple on November 2007, and married on our 10th anniversary in November of 2017, on the Redwood Deck in Hoyt Arboretum (Portland, Oregon).
