I live in the beautiful Hill Country of Texas with my beloved partner Tom. I grew up in Southeast Asia as the son of Protestant missionaries. I lived in Berkeley, California off and on during the 1960s, and later in various places. My diverse experience contributes to the richness of my imaginative stories. After 17 years as a college dropout, I finally returned to school and obtained a degree at CSU in Fort Collins, Colorado in. I graduated in 1994. I'm now writing and making artworks full-time at home and my purpose is service to humanity and the planet. I do what I love and I love what I do. Self-employed from now on, soon I'll invite Tom to retire and also pursue his own bliss.
