Hello and welcome to my humble web page.

To introduce myself, I am an American who got bored and set out to find adventure. I started in Egypt and then Turkey for a total of about a year and a half before settling in the quiet and peaceful Sultanate of Oman. It was a wonderful life, but after seven years it, too, grew boring. So I set out to find adventure again. I now live in Kabul, Afghanistan, where I teach English at the American University of Afghanistan. In
truth, the security restrictions make Kabul generally boring as well (interspersed with occasional suicide bombings.) However, the culture is fascinating, the students are amazing, and I'm very glad to be here.

You can find links to my published stories as well as various other things I'm involved in or do to the left. The picture to the right is a group of us at the Duralaman Palace. It's the backdrop to our south-facing buildings and classrooms, as wImg_8342.JPGell as the inspiration for one of my (as of yet unpublished) stories. The people in the picture are some other AUAF faculty. I'm the one in red.
