I was born in New Haven, Connecticut and, when it became clear my baseball career was unlikely to take me to the big leagues, I decided I might want to start concentrating on academics. I attended prep school in Massachusetts at Deerfield Academy and earned my BA in English with a minor in Mandarin at Georgetown University. I also studied in China at Peking University (Beijing daxue).
Shortly after college, I found myself in Los Angeles, CA where I've pursued writing ever since. I've served on the writing staff of TV shows as well as written short films, feature films, branded web series, and commercials. I recently delved into content writing to allow myself to explore a greater breadth of story areas.
