Christian Cantrell

Christian Cantrell is a writer and software developer living in Northern Virginia.

My two lifelong passions are storytelling and technology. While they might not seem like they have much in common, I believe they complement one another perfectly.

A good modern product should be part of a larger narrative. You don’t just buy a new phone; you incorporate a device into your life that helps you stay connected to the people and issues you most care about. You don’t just download video editing software; you learn a new workflow to amplify your voice. You don’t buy an EV to save money on gas; you make an investment in a better future.

Just as stories unlock the potential of products, technology unlocks the types of stories I like to tell. I don’t write near-future thrillers and science fiction to indulge in futurism; I explore science and technology that don’t yet exist to put characters in situations in which they can discover things about themselves that would otherwise have been impossible.
