Story is my medium. My novels, films, journalism, and conceptual art are unified by the possibilities of redemption through narrative.
Daedalus Howell has created over 40 short films, music videos, and branded entertainments that have appeared on MTV, IFC, HBO, and BiteTV. He co-created the original comic series, R&H Educational Films, for Universal/Showtime and co-produced the feature film The Aviary. He’s written premium content for Medium, wine stories for Men’s Health, and arts for the San Francisco Chronicle among hundreds of other bylines. He’s the author, most recently, of Quantum Deadline, which the North Bay Bohemian says is a “…noirish, sci-fi-lite detective story with a heap of self-parody that’s by turns poignant, witty and comic.” He is a host of the Morning Show on KSVY 91.3 FM and an associated editor at Emlen Media.
My flameouts are epochal. Each rise higher, each fall further. Trust me — my byline should be Icarus. Or Lucifer. Or a combo: Ludicrous. But I’ve got a helluva lot more wax and feathers to burn. It’s fuel for the creative flame and someday this tumult in the clouds may just prove a feat of derring-do.
Once: I was a small town newspaperman. I hacked in Hollywood. I washed up as wine writer in Sonoma. I aged out of Oakland. I repatriated to Petaluma, CA, and splintered myself, career and soul, on meaningless media until I rediscovered the artistic aspiration beneath.
Join me as I reclaim myself, word by word, and build a world. I’m Daedalus Howell. I’ll earn my wings yet. — DH
