About the Creators

Dana Hocking is a writer. When he was a kid, his imagination ran wild as they tend to do and making words out of the ideas that showed up seemed like a natural fit. 

At age 20, he began working for The Synthesis, a Northern California arts and culture magazine. There, he interviewed bands like Maroon5, POD, and Papa Roach. He also learned that he loved the blank page and the possibilities it represented. 

Dana has a degree in Media Arts from CSU, Chico and continues to enjoy all forms of creating. You can find him online at www.danahocking.com.
