I was born in Santa Barbara, (California), and raised in Seattle Washington). I have subsequently lived in California, Illinois and Minnesota before moving out to my wife's country of origin, Japan.
My work has appeared in the South Dakota Review, Crow's Nest, Expanding Horizons, The Enchanted Self, Community Mental Health Journal, Maturing, The Lyon County (Minnesota) Review Wine Rings, North Country Anvil, North American Mentor Magazine, the McLean County (Illinois) Poetry Review, River Bottom, Tower Talks and Foundations.
I have also authored several booklets in the mental health field, two of them co-authored with Ana Dvoredsky, M.D. in 2007.
