I am a teacher at a private high school right outside of the city of Chicago. I teach Creative Writing, Film, and Theology (I am not kidding.) I am also a writer with four books published (you can find me on Amazon or (website hidden).) I am enrolled in MFA program for Creative Writing at Antioch University in Los Angeles. I live in Oak Park IL with my wife, two cats and a dog. I am a non-smoker and, as you can probably tell from the photo, over 60. I spend most of my time reading and writing but I also play music and do some acting in Chicago theatre.
I will mostly be travelling to LA for residencies for the MFA program. While I am there, I am in class 10-12 hours a day (in Culver City) and reading the other hours that I manage to stay awake.
