A poet and process thinker, I taught Process and Reality and process theology, poetry, preaching, intro to theology, UCC history and theology, and courses on beauty and critique for 18 years at Pacific School of Religion. I hold a BS in biochemistry and piano performance from UC Davis, MDiv from Harvard Divinity, and interdisciplinary PhD in process philosophy, feminist/queer theory, and poetry from Graduate Theological Union., and in addition to teaching worked in biochemical research and as a Congregational (UCC) minister. Process essays are in volumes by Ashgate, SUNY, and Columbia UP, and poetry appears widely in journals and in Stranger the Dissolves (Sixteen Rivers, 2001) and Tender the Maker (May Swenson Award, UP of Colorado, 2015). Awards include The Missouri Review Editors' Prize, two Barbara Deming Awards, a poetry fellowship to St. Petersburg Russia, and the Dartmouth Poet at the Frost P,lace in Franconia NH. I live in Albany, CA, where I served as the first Poet Laureate.. I am currently working on a book of poetry closely attuned to the climate crisis. If my apartment was ever threatened by fire, my copy of PR, annotated with a long and evolving conversation, is a thing I would grab, though really process orientation is already firmly embodied in my living engagement with the world.
