About Daedalus Howell

Daedalus Howell is Hamlet












I’m an itinerant newspaperman and sci-fi crime author (you can preview the new series, beginning with Quantum Deadline, at Wattpad). I write a humor column in the 140-year-old Sonoma Index-Tribune, arts features for the North Bay Bohemian and occasionally guest-hosts The Drive on KSRO 1350 AM.

As part of my ongoing crusade to make access to media-making available to everyone, I’m CEO of CMedia, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization based in Sonoma County.

I recently repatriated to Petaluma in Sonoma County, CA, where I made my first forays into media as a paperboy, delivering the same newspaper that would eventually hire me for my first full-time writing gig (the venerable Petaluma Argus-Courier). I’ve either come-full-circle or am stuck in an enormous rut, treading a rat wheel I mistook for a career.

Post-Argus I wrote regularly for the San Francisco Chronicle, L.A. Downtown News, Sonoma Valley Sun and Fine Life Magazine for which I was editor. More recent bylines have appeared in Tasting Panel Magazine, Bigger Law Firm Magazine, SONOMA Magazine and Shea Magazine. I’m also a contributor to the Future Journalism Project. I spent a protracted lost weekend in Hollywood in film and TV development (Hell), squatting lots and making short works for Universal and RCA, before washing up in Sonoma County as a wine critic.

My videos have been distributed internationally on such outlets as Showtime Next, MTV2, MTV Italia, HBO Cesk Republika, BiteTV, IFC and Canal+. Creative clients have included Annie’s Homegrown, Sutter Home, Morton’s Steakhouse, La Tortilla Factory and the Sonoma County Tourism Bureau. Additional listings can be found at the Internet Movie Database. Here’s a mostly accurate Wikipedia listing.
