David Stevens

David Stevens is a 39 year old aging punk rock kid who, after being forced to sell his drums and guitar, has re-engaged in his teenage crusade to find release in escapism. A D&D vet who also plays a lot of video games and watches way too many TV shows and movies that his wife generally considers "cockamamie bulljive", he has become a connoisseur of geek culture and a pioneer of socially awkward adulthood. He spent his twenties as a contributor to three Central Florida music magazines (Outback, Counter Theory, Big Bully) and is currently struggling to complete two books (He is prioritizing a Cyberpunk novel entitled "Technocracy"). He currently lives (begrudgingly) in Tampa, Florida with his wife, three children, and Peter Pan complex, where he works in a call center, being screamed at by irrational strangers over the telephone. He will probably slip into a diabetic coma and die before he's 45.
