The son of a zoo director and an art therapist, I live in the midwest United States with my wife and young son. I have thirty years of martial arts experience and am an instructor in Jeet Kune Do and Kali under the legendary Dan Inosanto. I got my MFA in 2007 and have continued to study every aspect of writing since then. I also taught for the University of Iowa's International Writing Program for 5 years and teach college writing and lit classes now.

I'm also an Ambassador and am in charge of the @improveyourwriting profile, where you can go through a whole course in fiction writing. Please check it out!
