BACKGROUND
I was raised in Fairview, Oregon and spent my formative years living in an industrial farming community of migrant laborers near the mouth of Columbia River Gorge. I attended local public schools and excelled in folkstyle wrestling and English.

I received several grants for post-secondary education which was composed of a formal interdisciplinary program, ongoing seminars, advanced autonomous studies, externship and study-abroad modules.

Thereafter I completed masters level study in psychology as an honor student, received comprehensive clinical-training as a psychotherapist in a community outpatient clinic, and worked as a journalist and substantive editor on many creative and scholastic projects.
