My Bio
I grew up in San Jose, CA, at the southern end of the San Francisco Bay Area. I got tired of the dry, and moved up to Portland, OR, where it's green and moist. I like temperate rain forests, so it's a good fit. I like the motto "Keep Portland Weird", too, although it isn't nearly as weird as that motto implies. I have a degree in Business Economics, with a side order of Mechanical Engineering, and Graphic Design for dessert, although I never finished all of the curriculum because I started my own business, and just didn't have the time. (There were two of us doing the whole suite of user guides for a medical laser company's entire product line.)

Up until recently, I was a technical illustrator in my day job. Now I am between jobs, and will probably end up doing something more graphic designerly. With most manufacturing happening in the Asian countries, there isn't a lot of technical writing/illustration required (one of the casualties of the United States' new "service economy"). :-/

Still, technical illustration is my favorite, whether its working from exported CAD files, or phototracing, or just holding the part in one hand while drawing it in the other!

Muggrish of the Rural Watch

0 min read
The Farmlands South of Port Karn, Early Evening Mûggrish the Watchful took off his wide-brimmed pot helmet with its cheek pieces and lobster tail, and wiped his brow with his sleeve. It was a hot night, but then most nights during the month of Heatdaze were hot. But the sun had barely set, so it wouldn’t cool off for a little while yet. And the humidity didn’t help, either. It just left his unruly shock of long wavy black hair plastered to his ruddy tan skin. But he was an orc, and orcs didn’t complain about the weather. Unless there was someone to complain to. And tonight, he didn’t have a partner, as Gashnag at

I am doing some worldbuilding for a tabletop RPG I am running. I write things I call "Citiscapes": vignettes or short stories that feature people and places in the world. They are ultimately designed to aid the players in understanding what the world...
