Bewildering Stories biography

I am a career Silicon Valley engineer who enjoys tinkering with new technology, e.g. the Internet of Things. New technologies open frontiers and it’s exciting to imagine new gadgets and business models. My passions also include space, science, history, and random fun.

I love to write short fiction and have written hundreds of pages over many years. They cover a diverse range of themes in various genres: soft sci-fi, humor, absurd, or literary fiction. I prefer “soft” to “hard” sci-fi to take a break from the quantitative rigor of engineering.

My best stories are in my first anthology, Had He Worn a Different Body? and 20 Other Unexpected Tales. It has just been published and is available in paperback, e-book, and audiobook. Learn more at
