Seduced by the muse at an early age, I breathe, therefore I write.

Background Information


The one thing I've done consistently in my life is write.   That is not to say I've always done it especially well, but it remains the hardest yet most satisfying thing I know.   I've work in a wide of forms and mediums, and have often tried to fuse different elements of one form, one genre or another in new variations in effort to better serve and support the vehicles I write.   Every creative idea has an optimal form of expression, and it is the challenge of the author/artist to determine that form and deliver it.  

Two quotes might best reflect why I write:

"It is all my art and aim to compose into one and make whole all that is fragment and riddle and dreadful chance."   Nietzsche

"We write to make a world in which we can live."  Anais Nin. 

Birth Place
New York, NY USA

Author of published short fiction and full-length non-fiction. Writer, producer & director of independent programming for local TV. Assistant director of the Summer Writers' Conference at New York University, and assistant producer of Readers Almanac on National Public Radio. Recently published debut novel, Portrait of Deadly Excess.
