I was born in Modesto, California in the winter of 1977.
My mother was only 16, and my father 18.
I have two younger siblings, a sister and a brother.
I grew up in a small apricot town called Patterson.
In my youth I struggled with many drug and alcohol
dependencies, due to sever depression.
I have always loved books and reading. Throughout
my school years I had to attend advanced English classes.
In my early twenties I dropped out of college and began
hitch-hiking around the united states. I wanted to
experience life first hand. I did what I could for money
and spent many hours in large libraries. I wandered the
halls of many great museums. I lived on the streets and slept
in shelters, travelling from city to city. I had to my name
a change of clothes, a hoody, three or four books (thank
goodness for used book stores) and a notebook.
All my journals were lost or destroyed throughout my travels.
I retain most of the memories in my mind.
Now I live in Missouri with my girlfriend, writing and
paying the bills.
