Poet, Fiction Writer, Artist, Graphic Designer, Web Developer
I was a janitor who wrote poems late at night when I first heard the term, word processing. I was emptying trash in a large law firm on the 48th floor of the I.D.S. building in Minneapolis and those two words, word processing absolutely made my blood run cold. It sounded like something Satan had planned.  Words should never be processed. Words should be admired, carressed, and respected. Words are power. Ask anyone who didn't speak English when they moved here.  
I have a Masters of Fine Arts in English, with an emphasis in Fiction Writing, from The University of California, Irvine. I also have a B.A. in English from Macalester College, in St. Paul, Minnesota.
