He has written numerous scientific papers, co-founded a software company, and been awarded more than 80 patents. He continues to work in technology as he turns his hand to writing speculative dystopian fiction. Dr. Stanfill lives an active lifestyle, and is an avid bicyclist, skier, sailor, and musician. With his wife, Sharon (herself a software engineer), he has roamed the world, always seeking out new places and cultures to explore.
