A Few Words About Me

I’m a poet/cartoonist/watercolorist/writer and the founding editor/staff writer & cartoonist/layout artist for Plankton Press, a micropress that currently puts out GRAPH(feeties), a walking zine; Tiny Joys, a zine of small things that make life livable; and Dear Luna, an open letter to my friend Luna & those whose grief from loss is enduring.

You can find info on my books and other publications/artwork on other pages for this website: Books, Plankton Press, Other Publications.

Here’s some news about my work with links:

My latest book Doodling for Writers released October 6, 2020. Read a lovely review by Alyssa Graybeal, who refers to me as the Bob Ross of doodling!

My cartoon/free verse memoir, By the Forces of Gravity,  about a 1970s Berkeley childhood friendship cut short by tragedy, released through Books by Hippocampus  June 19, 2018.

In 2022, By the Forces of Gravity won a Memoir Magazine Book Prize for Innovative Storytelling.

In 2018, I was recognized as a thought provoker in VoyagePhoenix (October 25). Fun interview and you can see some of my hybrid art here.

Other personal details: born in Santa Barbara, grew up in Berkeley, but have been living in the Sonoran Desert with my family for over half my life. I miss the ocean every day.

From a young age, I have been outspoken, despite being frightfully shy by nature. I am no longer bald, but still sport a short do.
