He grew up in the beach town of Brick, New Jersey, completed a BA with honors from Moravian College in Pennsylvania, earned an MA with distinction from Cardiff University in Wales, served in the United States Peace Corps in rural South Africa, taught teenagers in inner-city Brooklyn and currently works as a lecturer of English at Wenzhou-Kean University in China.
