What you should know ...

The content of an "About Me" page always depends upon the point of entry or the larger context of the page. My professional me? My personal me? As a mentor of mine, William A. Fenwick, once told me: "I make no distinctions between a personal self or a professional self. It's my life."

The most basic information is that I am a Colorado Springs native and a product of Colorado Springs School District #11. I suppose my professional life and my personal life converge in my role as "Literacy and Language Arts Facilitator": my college major was in English, my passion is in writing, and my MA is in Teaching Secondary English from the Stanford Teacher Education Program.

I'm a single father of a 17 year old early graduate from Palmer High School. I'm in a relationship with a most awesome woman.
