Connoisseur of laundromats. Frequenter of neighborhood parks and Tijuana cafes. Transcriber of eavesdroppings. I make zines. I run. I enjoy live soccer matches, no matter the skill level of the players. My plays, stories, poems and essays have appeared in scores of publications, touching virtually all genres. My wife and I share a Southern California condo with two rescued cats, not to mention the balcony green with fresh basil. There are more ups than downs. Usually.
