I consider myself a "semi-formalist," writing in forms but not exclusively. I live in Brooklyn Heights, and work as the Grants and Gifts Manager for Habitat for Humanity-New York City. I teach a poetry workshop at Caring Community and have had poems published in many literary magazines and several anthologies, and have a collection of work on the online formal poetry site at www.hypertexts.com.

I have won in the past the Lenore Marshall Poetry Prize, The Academy of American Poets Prize, and a Breadloaf Writer’s Conference Fellowship, and nomination for the Pushcart prize. For The Lyric, I have won Best of Issue Prize, Honorable Mentions, the Ronald J. Kemski Prize, and served as judge in another issue.
