Raised in Fairview, Oregon, I spent my formative years living in an industrial farming community of migrant laborers near the mouth of Columbia River Gorge. I attended local primary and secondary schools, and alternative education programs for juvenile delinquency.

I received several need-based grants to sustain my post-secondary education, which included a formal interdisciplinary program, ongoing seminars, advanced autonomous studies, an 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 various creative and scholastic projects.
