Donald Gorman was born on September 25, 1961 in Albany, NY. He grew up in the nearby small town of East Greenbush. A nearly-fatal disease during infancy left the right side of his body partially paralyzed. He graduated from Columbia High School in 1979. Although he attended a few local colleges, he never earned a degree. His travels have mainly been confined to the north eastern United States, though he has been as far
north as Montreal, Canada. He worked for a while in Cape Cod and has gone as far west as Milwaukee and Chicago. Currently, he lives in upstate New York and works for The State in Albany.
