Tell us a little about yourself. I was born in Denver, Colorado. I used to let it go at that, but since everybody knows where Aurora is (sadly), I can add that from age 9 through high school graduation, I lived in Aurora, CO. Bitten early by the acting bug, I studied the craft of ..

The year is 2080 and the world is crowded. To feed the nearly 17 billion, the earth has been divided into agriculture or city. There is no in between, no margin for error in this high-tech world. Farms are ultra-efficient enterprises using the latest engineered crops, enormous plants manipulated to grow in any season and produce fantastic yields. Cities are dense and overcrowded, stuffed with men and women working endless hours to pay for their needs.
Their only relief is Virtual Reality - a synthetic world where any fantasy is possible - where a person can look like anyone, be anywhere. It is no wonder people spend every waking hour "jacked in" to this imaginary world. Access to Virtual Reality is controlled by one company, owned by one man. Tatsuo Hamachi has accumulated vast wealth, but his desire for power is greater. Now, he has discovered a way to connect human minds directly, without the need of Virtual Reality headsets, where thoughts can flow as easily as electricity through a wire. When every human mind is connected - he stands to be leader of them all.
There are a few who have rejected technology for a simpler life. Their only desire is to be left in peace. When Alvar, their leader, becomes an unwilling guinea pig for Hamachi's experiments, he must fight not only for his own mind, but those of the entire world.
