J. L. Kauffman is currently a freelance writer and photographer living in Windsor, CO. As a child Jake was home schooled, went to a Waldorf elementary school, and unschooled during high school. He has been published in Life Learning Magazine and he also once made a film in which a man measured the amount of time it took for him to make a peanut butter and jelly sandwich. . . the man that is, not Jake. Jake also finds it extremely awkward to write about himself in the third person.
