While living in Crested Butte he taught at WSCU and co-founded the Crested Butte Music Festival, serving as its first Executive Director. He also founded Conundrum Press (now owned by the Samizdat Group of Denver), and served as the founding Dean of Academics and then third Headmaster of Crested Butte Academy. He has published many volumes of poetry and prose, including two books of poems in 2013, Part of the Darkness (Entasis Press) and The Book of Catapults (White Violet Press).Tags: David Rothman, Reading
