Marquis Who’s Who announced on Monday, May 5,  2020 that I have been inducted into their registry! You can read about the announcement here. The biography will appear in their 2021 volume. More information will be forthcoming.

Nationally acclaimed Author JM Cullen is renowned as an author of business intelligence software and speculative science fiction with more than three decades of innovation in his field.

JM grew up in Yakima, Washington, the oldest of two sons of John L. and Rebecca L. Cullen. He served a mission for the LDS Church in Taipei, Taiwan, married in San Jose, California, earned a business degree from the University of Nebraska at Omaha, and writes damn good code. Noted as an expert in .Net full-stack development, he holds additional credentials in artificial intelligence development and Azure fundamentals. He is proud to have amassed a professional reputation for on-time and under-budget project completion and implementation across his career. He credits his success to his ability to identify clients’ needs while being unafraid to recommend alternative solutions to their challenges.

He lives by the motto: Don’t be afraid to fail since we all fail at times in our lives. If In fact, if we’re going to fail, why not fail spectacularly? Fail huge, and fail with gusto! At least then, you’ll have stories to tell.

Observing technological breakthroughs over the years, he began wondering how some of the predictions would come about and what life would be like. And how they could go wrong. He writes about the things that keep him up at night.

When he is not writing software or novels, JM travels worldwide. He fly-fishes, tried skydiving (once was good enough), and loves to SCUBA dive. His favorite places underwater are near Kawai, Hawaii, Grand Bahamas, Cancun (especially the Cenotes), and Grand Cayman. He is a certified life coach and has mastered the art of reading body language. So far, he has visited many parts of CA, CO, DC, FL, IA, ID, IL, MO, MT, ND, NV, NY, OH, OR, PN, SC, SD, TX, UT, VA, WA and WY, British Columbia, Tokyo, Japan, Taipei, Taiwan, Mexico, Bahamas, and Grand Cayman.

In 2020, he published his first novel, Unlikely, followed by Emotional Metamorphosis and Waking the Wight in 2021. 

In 2021, he was inducted into the Marquis Who’s Who of America. 

JM currently lives and works in Idaho and Utah.
