Born and raised in Southern California, I've been a writer, poet, paranormal researcher and occultist since 1995.  My articles on the paranormal, magic, lore and urban legends have been continuously published since 2009 and I have also been the subject of interviews in my areas of expertise. I have a great interest in researching and writing about occult topics that are considered taboo or generally misunderstood in hopes to educate those who are not familiar with such practices. If it is considered "dark" or "bizarre" my interest is immediately sparked.  My writing has been heavily influenced by Edgar Allan Poe, Sylvia Plath, and Anne Rice.  When I'm not exploring the macabre, I enjoy reading tarot, doing pendulum work, as well as other forms of divination.  Feel free to contact me with any inquiries you may have.
