My name is Michael and I am a freelance writer based in Vancouver BC, Canada. I have written articles about the intersection of religion with movies and video games, I run a subscription service that sends handwritten short stories around the world, and I help other artists create fictional worlds for other people to enjoy.
I enjoy writing strange/dark fiction, and fantastical settings in the distant past or far future. I also like writing stories about real historical figures and unique twists on existing folk tales and myths, especially when it helps raise voices and tales that are often marginalized.
I have a Bachelor of Arts degree in Philosophy and a Certificate of Religious Studies from Simon Fraser University. I worked in the video game industry for 2 years focusing on narrative and quality assurance and I have been a part-time freelance writer for over 5 years.
