“Seek patience and passion in equal amounts. Patience alone will not build the temple. Passion alone will destroy its walls.”

About Me

I consider myself first and foremost a writer. Over the years that has included everything from advertising, grants and travel puff pieces, to piles of poetry and fiction. The chance to share this affinity for language and stories in the classroom has been a great discovery. When not thusly focused, I paint abstract stories, collages broken tile, appreciate the absurd, cook like it might be the cure for something beyond restlessness, and keep my feet moving about the globe. Oh, and a trusty pair of flip-flops, those who me too.
