Raised a Mennonite but never baptized; lived on Yap in Micronesia for four years as a child but mostly grew up in Salem, Oregon; converted to science fiction fandom at eighteen; got a bachelors degree in English and moved to Seattle, been a university technocrat most of the time since. Gave up on writing fiction, but still hacking away at personal journalism. I'm also one of the co-editors of the fanzine Chunga, which you can sample at efanzines.com.
