About

I’m a reader, amateur naturalist, walker, writer and musician. Once a resident of the Midwest, lately I’ve been living in Arizona, and I’ll most likely wander a bit more before settling down again.

My literary influences include Dickens, Thoreau, Calvino, Lewis Carroll, Michel de Montaigne, and Sir Thomas Browne. Musically I’ve been influenced by Lester Young, Thelonious Monk, Frank Zappa, and a slew of traditional fiddlers and other musicians.
