About meI am a writer. I've published 15 poetry collections over the last two and a half decades. My main muse is Charles Bukowski, although I also dig Lawrence Ferlinghetti, and a few others.

I have three academic degrees, from the University of Tennessee, California State University, Long Beach and Queens University of Charlotte. I almost received a fourth in an entirely different field from UCLA before circumstances forced me to move to the southeast prematurely. Among the jobs I've held over the past few decades have been English professor (at three schools), editor, technical writer, project manager, networking engineering professional, operations manager, entrepreneur, and a few others.

I have lived all over North America. Los Angeles was my favorite. In 2006, I made my 28th move, from an island off the south Georgia coast up to the Chattanooga area, where I live with my wonderful wife and our two cats. I spend a lot of time in the IT world now, researching and working on Microsoft development, cryptography, malware forensics, and much more.

About my libraryMy library is not the largest one on this site. I've moved so many times that I have had to sell, donate or otherwise give away many of my books, much to my regret. However, it's a diverse library, and my absolute pride lies in my collection of autographed books. I have many, among them books signed to me by Charles Bukowski, Lawrence Ferlinghetti and William S. Burroughs! Among my current favorite writers are Philip K. Dick, Chris Bunch, Terry Pratchett, and David Weber.
