After reading Jack Kirby’s Forever People and New Gods comic books and watching 2001: A Space Odyssey, Dirk was assimilated during first grade recess into the collective known as Science Fiction. Fueled by the visions of mad scientists such as Philip K. Dick and Frank Herbert, he has quietly searched the galaxy for the next BladeRunner, Brazil and Dark City. Born in San Francisco and currently enjoying a steampunk version of Ft. Lauderdale, when not grokking Science Fiction he spends his time with family and friends and just maybe trying to enter the dreams of disingenuous politicians.
Favorites: Fringe, Dune by Frank Herbert, BladeRunner and Alien Hominid
