I've lived in Fresno since 1999, moving here for a job as a professor at California State University, Fresno where I specialize in English education and American literature. I've come to love Fresno and have adopted it as my home. However, I've also lived elsewhere in California, Utah, Arizona, Pennsylvania, Texas, Portugal, and Norway. I love to travel, but I also really love hanging out with friends, walking during the beautiful Fresno mornings, watching my wisteria blossom, and otherwise feeling a connection with place. I'm a budding photographer and a cookbook collector. (Check out featured photographs at my Instacanvas gallery).
Welcome to cake walk where I try to integrate my various interests and passions . . . and where I ruminate about the sweet things of life.
