About Me

Self-reflection
Self-portrait, circa 2017

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.
