Read my writing:

  • I used to do Frighten the Horses magazine.
  • Day jobs: Most of what I’ve done in the last 15 years has been at software companies; right now I’m a tech writer at a big enterprise software company. Previously I’ve worked as an English teacher in San Francisco and in Japan; and as a delivery truck driver, layout artist, church secretary, bike messenger dispatcher and dishwasher.
  • I used to be in Queer Nation and the Street Patrol. The book Family Values by Phyllis Burke covers a great deal of Queer Nation-San Francisco’s most active period, including two protests I had a hand in organizing:The Larry Lea Halloween action:

    …and the “Basic Instinct” protests:

  • I used to do contact improvisation and other dance and performance art. Among the performing I used to do, I was the semi-regular opening act for a group called The Bobs. I wrote a song called “Be My Yoko” that they recorded.
  • I went to the University of Texas and wrote movie reviews for the Daily Texan in the 1970s
  • I went to Clear Lake High School in the pit of horror that is the Clear Lake (Tex.) area:
