I’m an author, activist, and 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. I graduated from UC Berkeley in 1982 with a degree in English. Since 2007 I’ve supported research computing on the campus through my work in the university’s information technology division. I write, organize as a grassroots activist, and study Tai Chi Chuan in Berkeley, California.
