Jeff Kirk is a board-certified geek. He studied biology and chemistry at the New Mexico Institute of Mining and Technology, the University of New Mexico, and the University of California at Berkeley.

After deciding that laboratory science wasn't for him, he got a job in Silicon Valley and hasn't looked back. He's worked at some of the most successful companies in his twenty-six year career in technology, including Microsoft and Google.

Since the age of eight, he's been an avid reader—and now writer—of science fiction and fantasy. He also composes music, takes pictures, creates computer graphics and illustrations, and watches way much too much television. He lives in the San Francisco Bay Area.
