I’m an author, activist, and recovering information technologist. I hail from Chicago, but my family relocated to the Bay Area in 1970 so I’ve spent most of my life in California. My short fiction has appeared in Garo, Stoneboat Literary Journal, Five Fingers Review, and Christopher Street. I also share screenplay credit for an anti-apartheid movement documentary, "Soweto to Berkeley" (Cinema Guild, 1988). I write, organize as a grassroots activist, and study Tai Chi Chuan in Berkeley, California.
