David R Eisenstein describes his writing as a disease. He claims the words need to be written or he will retch alphabet soup or explode in a cloud of well-worn and yellowed scrabble tiles. He writes every day to avoid this fate.
A lifelong teacher, he lives in New Jersey with his wife and four cats. His writings have appeared in such diverse venues as Washington Technology, The NJEA Journal, HungryOnion.org, and Bluff magazine. He has appeared on stage as a spoken word artist, a comedian, and a motivational speaker. His company, Purplearn, uses social emotional learning to promote brain health.
