Major Update Coming soon

In celebration of what would have been my father's 93rd Birthday,
this website is undergoing a major overhaul on June 28, 2022

  • Why June 28th?

    I had planned the overhaul for the start of June, however, events forced postponement and it is now scheduled for what would have been my father's 93rd birthday on June 28th.

  • More Novel

    I am in the editing phase of
    The Guardsman and the Thief
    so expect a lot more about my novel and setting in the days to come.

  • Twitch
    Work-n-Lurk
    & Gaming

    With things settling down I will be focusing more on the streaming content that my viewers want to see on Twitch and extending that to content on this website with more in-depth articles on both games and writing.

  • Discord & Socials

    From Discord to Twitter, I will be using this website to draw together and grow the community, and I would love for you to be a part of it.

    The new website will make that easier than ever before, regardless of where our interactions take place.

    The Guardsman
    & The Thief

    Book One

    Accused of the murders he was investigating, city guardsman Gabriel must find a way to prove his innocence when his only ally is a thief that distrusts everyone.

    The Guardsman and the Thief is an epic grimdark fantasy novel set in a world entering the dawn of an industrial revolution. Part Epic Fantasy, Part Steampunk Adventure, and part Grimdark Thriller, this novel takes a hard look at a world where men  gain power by the manipulation of others through misunderstanding and fear.

    An Epic Grimdark Fantasy

    The Guardsman and the Thief is a stand-alone novel that is the start of a new series.  It is currently in the editing phase, with hope to seek publication sometime in 2023.

    Other Games
    I play far too many games to actually list them all here, so I have listed my top picks to give an idea of the kinds I play. Mostly I love ones with a good story and an open world, add in a thief character and it is a surefire win for me.

    My Blender Models

    In addition to writing. I enjoy 3D modeling with Blender.  Most of my work has been lost, but I have managed to keep a few pictures of some of the  models I have made over the years.

    Switch Panel
    An electrical switch panel based on the 1800's knife switch panels.

    I removed the fuse sockets, leaving just the detail at the bottom of the sockets, and added lights at the center of each of the switches.

    J Del Haxhe knuckle gun
    I made this scaled model over the course of a couple of days on impulse after seeing this gun on an antique gun collector site. This was a personal project with no goal other than to recreate this weapon.

    Outdoor Electrical Boxes
    This is a set of old outdoor electrical boxes that I am working on for a personal project. The texture in the rendered image is a placeholder texture and not the final look I intend for the model to have. The doors of the three boxes open in relation to the base unit, and the handles are set to rotate in relation to each parent door.

    I have not made any of the internal parts for this model, since I do not need them for my project.
