About Me

Published poetry locally; active ultramarathoner. Lived in Berkeley since 1976; originally from Southern California. Attended UC Riverside and UC Berkeley.

Why do you write?

I attempt to understand my experience with the world and share this with like-minded people. I also read from the past to discover other writer's views on life.

Any favorite authors? Books?

Rilke, Flannery O'Connor, Franz Wright, Edmond Jabes, John Keats, James Wright, Charles Simic, many, many, others.
