Santa Cruz, CA

Originally from San Jose, California, currently living in Santa Cruz for the past two plus decades, and over the years I've worked at a variety of jobs in order to support my writing habit.  There are many reasons why I write, but the main one is I enjoy it.  My style is heightened realism and my focus is on the Bay Area, but my themes are universal.  In 2016 I became a producer at Community Television of Santa Cruz where I staged and broadcast a number of my one act plays.  Currently I'm looking to publish my novel Redwood Summer (a story of 1990 San Jose), searching for a theater company willing to produce one of my full length stage plays, and helping a friend with a screenplay while writing one of my own.  Click links on menu to peruse my writings.
