He is a frequent co-host for the monthly YA Book Club at Barnes & Noble at The Grove, alongside Not Your Sidekick author C.B. Lee.
His short story “98% Graves” was nominated by Writer’s Digest for Best Science Fiction Story of 2015.
A gay geek, he is also a recurring co-host on the popular Buffy the Vampire Slayer podcast Slayerfest98, alongside special guests like Last Seen Leaving author Caleb Roehrig and RuPaul’s Drag Race alum Trixie Mattel.
