I grew up in southern California and went to college at Santa Clara University, where I studied Theatre Arts and Women's & Gender Studies. After college, I did a year of service with the Jesuit Volunteer Corps in Baltimore, MD, and I then spent two years living and working in a community of adults with and without developmental disabilities in the Kansas City metro area. I currently teach in Jilin City, China.
I write fiction, usually shortish fiction, usually science fiction or fantasy. I write and perform poetry, usually either performance/slam poetry or SF poetry. I also write nonfiction, including short fiction reviews, blog posts, and other essays.
I'm a member of the Science Fiction and Fantasy Poetry Association (SFPA), and you should join too. I'm a sinophile who studies Mandarin Chinese. I'm also a GNU/Linux user, a big fan of Free Software, a supporter of the Software Freedom Conservancy, an amateur sysadmin, and an middling web/ebook designer.
I love science fiction and intentional communities. I like cooking, religion, podcasts, critical theory, and hiking. I think copyright law is fascinating. I also like to tap dance.
I maintain a low-volume mailing list for news about my recent publications and other interestings things that I'm up to. Want to join?
