First journal at 13 (thanks, bro). Earliest influence e.e. cummings (thanks, sis). BA in computer science (sigh--thanks, I guess, Dad). MA in creative writing (thanks for the nudge, Anna). 

Two novels in the desk drawer. Then I rediscovered poetry. Wow! Thanks, Francis Weller (, for showing me the beauty of poetry read aloud.

Two books of poetry: Iron Pot and waking a lover. Recent poems in Salamander, Forge Journal, Schuylkill Valley Journal, Whole Person journal, Santa Barbara Quarterly, and The Bubble

Come read with me sometime! In the meantime, check out my latest poem. The second-to-latest. Think about buying a whole book of poems right on this-here website! 

And drop me a line and tell me about yourself.
