The year is 2035, set in a timeline where the United States was bought out by China, and has become testing grounds for regulations. The world for the most part looks the same, casual clothing, laptops, tablets, basic cars and houses. The national currency has been switched to cryptocurrencies, the Federal Reserve has been demolished and in its place Brick.ICO, a stock market style exchange, has been formed.Children are sterilized at birth until they come of age and pass the ASVAB. The public education sector has collapsed and with it has emerged a new type of Public Knowledge firm which utilizes a single Holographic teacher that conducts lessons from her Holodeck/VR Room with a pop culture and video game based curricular. The largest technological advancements are AR glasses and contacts, augmented mechanical/prosthetic limbs, consciousness backup units, and nervous system stimulants for soldiers.

The story follows Michael, an employee at Brick.ICO, along with his daughter, a high school student. A group which held a large part of the market withdraws all their money at once nearly crashing the system and throws the country in panic. It is unsure who is behind it, but the board is suspicious of Michael due to the speculation from a dominant AI named Sarah (The standard issued AI for every system in the USA). Records on servers across the country are becoming corrupt and altered at a rate beyond the ability to fact check. Meanwhile an entity moving in a realm beyond human comprehension is working its way to establish first contact.

I'm a 30 year old IT Guru background with a love for Sci-Fi.I'm also a big fan of cult classics and other interestingly unique, artful movies. I have more favorite directors than actors and actresses. I think my all-time favorite is John Carpenter, you just can't beat his movies. They really capture the look and feel of his stories, not to mention most of the time he produced his own music for them.  I am currently working on a four part sci-fi screenplay that I would like to see on Netflix/Hulu/AmazonPrime. It started off with me wanting to write a book and somebody casually mentioning that I should just save time and skip to the screenplay.My writing style is a bit unique, more of a... Go to bio
