Alex Simand is an MFA Candidate at Antioch University Los Angeles. His words border on the inane, but with an attempt at the furtively transcendent, the genuinely human, grasping at those slippery moments...read more that make us say "aha!" He writes poetry and nonfiction. Alex lives in San Francisco, where he is employed as an Electrical Engineer filled with gentrifying self-loathing. He attempts to consolidate his math-brain with his writer-brain on a daily basis with varying degrees of success. His work has appeared in Mud Season Review, Red Fez, Ash & Bones, and Prague Revue.
