Author's Bio

I write and perform poetry, short fiction, nonfiction and very short plays. Much of my work has been published. For ten years I hosted a popular spoken word series in San Francisco, Celebration of the Word. My small press has published 20 poets since 1996. I teach English and social studies to youth and adults. My essays and film reviews are published on sidewalkstv.com.
