Robert Andrew Perez lives in Berkeley, California with two biologists. He is literally rolling in the dough, working for a Chicago-style deep dish pizza company based not in Chicago. Robert holds various other odd jobs: teaching ESL, mobile DJing for weddings and Bar Mitzvahs, and working for the English departments of UC Berkeley and Saint Mary’s College (where he earned his BA and MFA, respectively) in a variety of academic capacities ranging from undergraduate Chicago-style paper scrubber to lecturer. He is also the blog manager for the Underpass Reading Series and design editor for speCt!, a letterpress imprint, both based out of Oakland. His recent work can be found in The Cortland Review, Writing Without Walls and somewhere on this site. He has yet to visit Chicago.
