My background offers us a few clues about my poetry writing. I have a Master's Degree from California State University and a Bachelor's Degree from the University of California, Berkeley, but I write poetry mainly because it expresses life's beauty. I'm currently enjoying single life in Northern California, U.S. with my girlfriend whom I've known for close to four years. I have no pets, and have worked in the biopharmaceutical industry in QA documentation for the past 15 years. I'm an avid bowler with a pair of sanctioned 279s, two sanctioned 278s, and sixty-one sanctioned 600 series.
