is an independent scholar and translator of dead authors who wrote in dead languages, a vocation which has given a slightly Ouija cast to his thinking. His most recent literary venture is “Blame It On Blake,” a memoir of his friendship with the writers of the Beat Generation, in which his misdeeds are written large and printed small. He lives in northern New Jersey with a brilliant artist named Meryl and an ill-tempered dog named Crudleigh.
He maintains a blog, Scholar Adrift, where he is posting his current project, a translation of the Tang poet Tu Fu. His publications are available from Amazon. He makes videos on mathematics and art history, and occasionally posts to his Facebook page.
