Currently, I teach ESL at an intensive English program. I have a master's degree in English with a TESOL (Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages) option, and I speak some Japanese and a little Mandarin Chinese. I'm a pretty well-rounded geek, thoroughly eclectic, and seriously interested in almost everything.
After some time away from fiction writing, I'm returning to it and getting serious about it. I'm also working on academic and non-academic nonfiction writing.
Some of my favorite things include walking at Coyote Hills Regional Park, a good pencil sketch coming together, finding great new restaurants, Doctor Who (unashamedly), Studio Ghibli films, NorCal car trips, and when the stars align so that an actual science fiction movie is released.
