Currently serving as Senior Immigration Attorney specializing in EB-5 investment immigration matters. I assist USCIS-approved Regional Centers and project developers in drafting business plans, private placement memoranda, and other legal documents relating to EB-5 investment projects. I have also represented over 300 individual EB-5 investors in filing I-526 immigrant investor applications to obtain U.S. green cards. I also perform contract drafting and review, project analysis, and handle various international immigration matters.

Started work on Right Ascension in June of 1998 while living at home in Hollywood, Florida. Though I had just graduated from the University of Florida (Go Gators!) with a major in Philosophy, and thus had recently written more papers than any one human being should be forced to produce in a lifetime, for some unknown reason I decided, "Hey, I’ll write a 300-page novel." So here I am.

I am grateful to my editors, Jay, John, and my father, Daniel, whose help was instrumental in completing Right Ascension and its sequel, Declination (which I wrote while I probably should have been studying in law school). Both books were published in e-book and paperback formats by Bookbooters Press – I was the first author they sought out for publishing in May 2000, and Right Ascension won their inaugural "eBook of the Year" award. Unfortunately, Bookbooters Press shut its doors in 2005. However, the novels are still available for secure online purchase here and through multiple retailers. Once ordered, the paperbacks are shipped within 48 hours, and the e-books are available for immediate download. Can’t wait to start reading? When you purchase any paperback, you get the e-book version for free! How’s that for instant gratification?

Recently, I worked on short stories when the time constraints of my "day job," as an attorney for a large corporate law firm in Los Angeles, allowed it. Currently, I have "retired" from the legal profession, gotten married, and moved back to South Florida, where I concentrated on writing my third novel, The Twiller. That novel is in a much lighter vein than the Right Ascension series, and follows our helpless protagonist as he navigates a sometimes cruel, often inane, and always funny Universe. The Twiller was released in June 2010, and made it into Amazon’s Top 200 overall in the Kindle store, and #4 in both the “Humor” and “Science Fiction” categories.
