About Me


I'm a Washington DC-based writer who's been living in the city since 1996. I'm a husband, first-time father as of a few months ago, and have equal passions for great stories and sustainability.

On the literary side, some great magazines (like Harpur Palate, The Columbia Review, SmokeLong Quarterly, and Ricky's Back Yard) have published my fiction and I've been nominated for the Pushcart Prize.

On the personal side, I'm doing what you do... trying to balance family and work and life, making a buck with making a difference. I love to practice aikido, travel, read books and watch movies, and hear other people's stories.


I bet you've got a good one. I'd sure love to hear it. Talk to me at henry@henrypresente.com.
