I am a native of Southern California who spent nearly my entire waking childhood outdoors. In the late 1980s and early 1990s, I worked at SURFING Magazine as an Art Assistant. In 1998, I graduated cum laude from University of California, San Diego (UCSD) where I served as the Student Director of UCSD's Language and Cognition Lab while earning a B.A. in Linguistics with a Specialization in Language and Mind. My graduate studies in English were at University of California, Irvine (UCI). I worked at Laguna Art Museum for over twenty years and have maintained a post as a part-time Liberal Arts faculty member and Writing Lab Director at Laguna College of Art and Design (LCAD) since the fall semester 2000. In July 2012, I became LCAD's first Communications Manager. I am the author of Wolfgang Bloch: The Colors of Coincidence (Chronicle Books, 2008). My writing has appeared in the pages of Juxtapoz,The Surfer's Journal, Surfer Magazine, Surfer's Path, Surfer's Mind, Surfline, The Inertia, Saatchi, Glide, Laguna Art Magazine, Orange County Register, Riviera Magazine, OC In-Room Magazine, and more. A very, very amateur pianist, I count writing, playing, and listening to an eclectic array of music among my top passions. I am the creator, writer, editor and producer of "College. Art. Radio.", a weekly, hour-long radio program on KX935FM. Surfing, traveling, stand-up comedy, culinary arts, reading, writing, creating art, and sampling craft coffees and beers are other activities that keep me (mostly) sane.
