has worked in the computer industry for more than 25 years and has been writing haiku nearly as long. A city-dweller since birth, he leans toward urban themes in his work, with an emphasis on the vibrancy, diversity, and polarity of the city setting. He is the author of tenement landscapes (a small garlic press, 1995); trainsongs, haiku and free verse (double bunny press, 1997); and the brewpub chronicles (Haiku in Low Places, 1999).
