Welcome. This is home for my collected self-published writings. In real life I am a civil rights/employment law attorney by profession. I live in El Norte, just this side of the great and beautiful wall, in America’s Finest City. I write about travel, music, film and (lately) politics. I also write fiction. A lifelong student of philosophy, I try to infuse my essays and writings with insights from an examined life.
