I was raised in the San Francisco Bay Area but have spent most of my adult life in Oregon, where I live with my wife, Ellen. I am perhaps the world's proudest father of a daughter who is about to get married! I've published three novels and several stories and poems in literary magazines, and I was once the Northwest Review's poetry editor at the University of Oregon, where I received my MFA in English/Creative Writing. Most of my professional experience is as a teacher of special needs students in the Philomath School District in Western Oregon, where I felt truly privileged to work!
