Running, Vegetarianism, Swimming
  • As a dedicated runner, Dylan has stuck with running every day for more than 10 years. His last day off was June 30, 2012.
  • Dylan has been vegetarian for most of his life, and getting all the nutrients he needs to power his active lifestyle has made him far more conscious of what he eats.
  • Dylan has done marathons, ultramarathons, and triathlons. Next challenge is going to be swimming across the Chesapeake Bay.


Dylan has been a professional writer and editor for more than 10 years. After serving as the editor in chief of a small local newspaper, he launched his freelance career in 2019. His work has been published online as well as with regional and national magazines. When he isn't writing as a journalist, he writes fantasy novels on the side. (Be sure to check out "The Purple Bird" wherever you buy books.)


Dylan graduated from University of Maryland with a degree in English.
