Biography

381500_10100541490959673_1013634709_nI look around. I see people moving about the world and they’re going to places. Usually in a damn hurry.

Where? they hardly know. I know this, because I hardly know. I try to know, and sometimes it actually works out. But most of the time…fuck.

I have this theory: that being weird is normal, and being normal is weird. I try to keep it weird. And that goes into my stories. Making the weird normal, for the normal people.

I live in Boulder, Colorado. I came here for the mountains, and the terra cotta roofs of CU offered a good enough excuse to stay. I studied anthropology: the study of culture. That means you, me, Mesopotamia and everyone in between.
