I’m a dad, husband, author, and composer based in the Bay Area, California. Once upon a time, I was an education thinker and policy wonk. (I hold a Ph.D. in Education.) But nowadays, my passion for understanding how people learn and grow runs through my creative work and family life.
I write fiction of a literary and often magical-realist bent.
I write about fatherhood and how it changes me.
I’m a poet.
And I compose and record songs that blend popular and experimental genres.
