Member Info

San Rafael
Single after twenty years otherwise.
Feb 2009
  • After abandoning writing to become a scientist in college and medical school, I made a decision at forty to rediscover something of my missing twenties and began studying poetry.  My day job is physician--internal medicine and geriatrics(and known to make house calls).  My first book of poetry, One Breath, was recently published by Tebot Bach Press. It contains poems of my medical training and practice.
