He is known for his Nitpicker's Guides, in which he nitpicks plot holes and continuity errors in the various Star Trek television programs and movies, and for the creation of Nitcentral, a website devoted to the same activity. Subsequent to his Nitpicker's Guides, he has ventured into fiction as a novelist, writing, “The Son, the Wind and the Reign” and “Grumpy Old Prophets: A Christmas Fable for Adults”. He earned bachelor's degrees in piano performance and in composing music.
