Biography[edit]

At age 18, Young received local press coverage when he became the first person in the city of Provo, Utah, to get in line for the opening of Star Wars: Episode I – The Phantom Menace.[1] Three years later, he repeated the stunt, camping out at the cinema three weeks before the opening of Star Wars: Episode II – Attack of the Clones.[2]

Young was inducted as an honorary member of the 501st Legion.[3]

Film[edit]

Young co-directed two feature films, Missy and The Fleapit Three, and a feature-length documentary, The Misbehavers.[citation needed] He collaborated with director and friend Steven Greenstreet on a pair of documentaries, serving as assistant director for This Divided State and producing Killer at Large.[4]

His short film 3 1/2 Stars won Best Writing at the Helper Film Festival.[citation needed]

Writing[edit]

In collaboration with Elias Pate and Derek Hunter, Young contributed to the comic book series Pirate Club, released quarterly by Slave Labor Graphics.[5]

His self-published novels Lost at the Con, Operation Montauk, Serpent's Head, and The Aeronaut received positive reviews.[6][7][8][9][10]

He has freelanced for Star Wars Insider,[11] the official Star Wars blog,[12] HuffPost,[13] Salt Lake City Weekly,[14] and "geek news and reviews" blog Big Shiny Robot!, which he co-founded.[citation needed]
