ABOUT ME

I believe that poems grounded in specific locations are powerful forces of connection, so I often focus on poems of place.

Poems can be enjoyed by anyone. You don't need specialized training to access a poem's meaning or to appreciate its form or to let its language work magic on you. 

 

I earned my MFA in Writing from the University of Nebraska. My poems have been published in or are forthcoming in Avalon Literary Review, Boston Accent Lit, California Quarterly, Crack the Spine, Euphony, Figure 1, FRiGG, Ghost City Review, Hawaii Pacific Review, The MacGuffin, Midwest Quarterly, The New York Quarterly, Owen Wister Review, Pennsylvania English, Pudding Magazine, Quercus Review, Soundings East, Sweet Tree Review, The Virginia Normal, Voices de la Luna, Westview, Zone 3, and others. My essays have appeared in The International Journal of Ethics and Information Technology, in The Journal of Philosophy in the Contemporary World, and in an anthology published by Potomac Press.
