Born in 1938. Grew up in Greenwich Village, New York City. Lived in California and Mexico. Worked as a free-lance journalist in Mexico. He wrote, "I have worked for many years as a freelance foreign correspondent, a job description that dignifies the trivia of political exile. Social strife in the Third World is a particular attraction. Which is to say, for a long time now I've been moving around Latin America looking for trouble." Died in Mexico in January 2011.
