I grew up in Michigan, and have lived in Sacramento, California since 1987. My wife Anara is a fiction writer and hails from Chicago. As of fall 2016 I am a docent at the Crocker Art Museum.
For 27 years I worked at UC Davis Medical Center first as a bedside pediatric nurse, and then as an analyst on the Electronic Medical Record. I am an avid reader and interested in the life of the mind. Deep, meaningful interaction with people is important to me, as is an active physical lifestyle.
My activities and interests include the written word, bicycling, piano, science, spiritual yoga, wilderness, community, philosophy, computer science/Net, medicine, dance, fine/spec fiction, and artistic creation.
I am an optimist and believe in the power of people to achieve great things individually and together in this beautiful world.
