Author's Bio

I have previously worked as a NYC Teaching Fellow, a staff writer at the theater magazine offoffonline, and an assistant editor of Epoch. I have an MFA in poetry from Cornell, where I am currently a Ph.D. candidate writing on self-parody in 18th century British literature. I teach classes at Cornell and Auburn Maximum Security Prison through CPEP. I am also the co-founder of Brooklyn Playwrights Collective, and I have had several plays and verse dramas produced in regional and off-off-Broadway venues, including a libretto performed at the Johnson Museum of Art. For two years I have been the Artist-in-Residence at Risley Residential College. I also have been awarded residencies from the Provincetown Community Compact, Ora Lerman Trust, and Petrified Forest National Park.
