Born in New York City in 1941, I grew up in Los Angeles and Mexico City. Returned to NYC for college (Columbia '62), did two years in the US Army at Fort Ord, worked as apprentice tech writer in Berkeley.
Moved to Canada with my wife Alice in 1967, stumbled into teaching and found I loved it. At Capilano College from its opening in 1968 until the spring of 2008. Taught in China, 1983-84.
Have written a lot of books and articles; current projects include a novel, a couple of nonfiction books, and articles for online journals.
