I have lived in Park Slope, Brooklyn since 1986. I grew up in New Jersey and attended Oberlin College in Ohio. I spent a semester living in Dublin, Ireland, reading a lot of James Joyce, and drinking a lot of Guinness. When back at Oberlin I helped to found a student literary magazine called Writers' Bloc.

In 1994 I became involved with Oberlin Lesbian, Gay and Bisexual Alumni (OLGBA),
which has since become
Oberlin Lambda Alumni (OLA). I became the co-chair of OLA after a short time, and am very proud to have helped lead the largest LGBT alumni organization in the country.
