Bio: First off, thank you for visiting my site. I share autobiographical pieces, short stories, some fiction, and musings on current events, including politics, sports, and life. I teach high school English in East Salinas, Ca. I'm also an adjunct English instructor at Hartnell Community College in Salinas, Ca. I am an L.A. native, but I now call Monterey home. I live with my wife and two daughters. Besides family, I have a deeply rooted love for the "beautiful game." I am the head varsity boys' soccer coach at Alisal High School. We are a nationally ranked high school soccer program, winning two state section championships in four-years. Again, thank you for visiting. Cheers!
