About Me

My background

 Born and raised in the great First State (check your history books!); graduated from Cornell University with a B.S. degree in Atmospheric Sciences, with distinction; worked in accounting functions, mostly for Campus Crusade for Christ (now "Cru") and the once figure skating Mecca of Ice Castle International Training Center; currently Finance Manager for Rim of the World Recreation and Park District.

My writing passions

 Poetry and theology.

My style

 I'm into irony -- the finest path there is into deep truth (check Jesus' parables if you have doubts).


Latest release, November 2017

 Flashlights at the Sun:  Poetry to Help Shed Some Subjects on the Light, published by Deep River Books but available most everywhere.
