Grew up in Maine as the son of a professional humorist and storyteller, so whether by nature or nurture or some concoction of the two it was probably his destiny to become a ‘Jack of all creative trades’. He holds a BA in film production from Bard College in Annandale, New York, and has worked extensively in broadcast and public-access television. He has dabbled in cartoons and comic strips, and has been published in The National Catholic Reporter, Commonwealth Magazine, and on the website bustedhalo.com. He sings, he dances (or tries to, at least), and acts in and directs a number of community theatre productions. He writes blog posts for the Flynn Performing Arts Center in Burlington, Vermont, and provides web, brochure, and newsletter copy for various freelance clients. In his spare time he works at a small grocery store near his Essex, Vermont home.
