Who, Me?

I garden.

I live in the Sheridan neighborhood of Minneapolis.

I work at the Minneapolis Telecommunications Network, teaching video production. I am also a video and film maker, and I call the work that I do for myself Sloppy productions. My friend Rob Price and I recently completed a digital feature film called Butte Magic of Ignorance. I also recently shot, and am now in post-production on another long project co-produced with a group of friends. That film is called 8500. I do these things because I love movies, particularly the films of F.W. Murnau and Buster Keaton, as well as nonnarrative segments from narrative films.

I write fiction and poetry that has not been widely disseminated.

I live my life, striving to avoid and, with some luck, subvert the car culture. I am also active in my neighborhood association, and maintain its web site.

These pages are frequently updated, especially during the generous Minnesota "non-gardening season," so check back often!
