I am an American in his 30s living in the U.K., educated in Los Angeles and Sheffield, received a Petrie Watson Scholarship and the Moore Smith English Prize from the University of Sheffield; and now work full-time as an author of fiction and non-fiction books. My main interests are phenomenology (Heidegger, Levinas, Derrida); film (particularly Stanley Kubrick); literature (particularly seventeenth- and eighteenth-century poetry); and classical music (particularly Alfred Schnittke). Some of my books in the pipeline to be published include three novels and a 2,000-page biography of the legendary American billionaire Howard Hughes. My own personal website is found at [1]

Some of my online works include

A Shot-by-Shot Analysis of the First Twenty Minutes of Eyes Wide Shut
