His chapbook A Room in the Country will be published by Pudding House Press in 2010 and Uncommon Refrains is forthcoming from The Lives You Touch Publications . First published by The Pedestal Magazine, his poem “Confessions of an Apothecary” has been nominated for a Pushcart Prize. He is a recipient of a Dorothy Sargent Rosenberg Prize for 2008 and a finalist for the 2010 Sixteen Rivers Chapbook Contest as well as the 2008 White Pine Press book award and the 2006 Stan and Tom Wick Poetry Prize.
