I'm a 22yo front-end web developer/designer living in Louisville, Kentucky currently working with an independent Chapter 13 bankruptcy software company allowing me an opportunity to use my skills in a professional setting, whilst I'm constantly learning and progressing as well.

All of the fun HTML and CSS and Javascript (that JS part is still a WIP) that builds a website . . .

Some of my work

LILIES & LIONS

Alongside, and honestly as a result of my interest in web design, I realised that I had the capacity to create a site for one of my passions: alternative history. You might ask what is that? Quite simply put, it's a form of fiction in which I look at a past event and devise how history would change if that event occured differently.

Lilies & Lions is the name of my own alternative history, beginning in 1421 with the death of Charles VI of France and the survival of Henry V who would go on to rule both England and France. To me, it has become an interesting historical study. I've created maps and written hundreds of pages of history that I'm adding online periodically. With a more literary mindset, I've considered writing a novel set later in the timeline.

LILIES & LIONS

Ad Infinitum

Sci-fantasy: Take the idea of angels and daemons being real, but not as beings living in Heaven and Hell, rather, as aliens living in the stars. That is the world of Ad Infinitum.

Set in 2445, humanity has stumbled upon the greatest of all conflicts, the war between Caelum and Infernum. A war that humanity had always known about, but never believed to be real. How will a now galaxy-spanning species react to the knowledge that they've never been truly alone?

Ad Infinitum

At Night

All of the horror . . . coming soon.
