Hi there!

I'm a poet, writer, and musician.

I graduated from the University of Virginia with a double major in English and music, and later studied creative writing at the University of Southern Mississippi and the Iowa Writer's Workshop. I've published a chapbook, A Lost Empire (Ion Books, 1996) and a full-length book of poetry, Loose Weather (Washington Writers' Publishing House). I work as a communications manager for UMD's A. James Clark School of Engineering. I live in Laurel, Maryland with my wife, two children, and two cats.
