About

I have taught in public, private, and charter high schools as well as in a community college, and my poems have appeared in literary magazines, anthologies, and a reference work on poetic form. My newest chapbook, Bugs Us All, is a collaboration with the artist Walter Gurbo, and my chapbook of sonnets and quatorzains, The Cards We’ve Drawn, co-won the 2013 Bright Hill Press At Hand Chapbook Award. Currently, I teach at Shanghai American School.

Some of the places where my poems have appeared include:

The Book of Forms, A Handbook of Poetics Including Odd and Invented Forms (University Press of New England)

Arcana: The Tarot Poetry Anthology (Minor Arcana Press)
