|Born in Baltimore, Maryland in 1950, I lived also near New York, Atlanta and Chicago while growing up. After attending Dartmouth College, I continued my travels throughout the western states and Canada. I completed my formal education with an M.A. and teacher training in British Columbia, and taught in Inuit villages in northern Quebec for three years. In 1980 I settled in a small mountain community in B.C., where I established a homestead, built a house and started a family of my own. In 2002 I sold my house and moved to the city (Victoria, B.C.), where I run an online editing business, teach drumming, and play music for African dance classes and a world-beat percussion band.|
Having worked also as a carpenter, treeplanter and nonviolence trainer, I've continued a lifelong devotion to writing. My poetry, fiction and nonfiction has appeared in a variety of periodicals and anthologies.
