My work has appeared in World Literature Today Magazine: Windmill, NPR, Bombay Gin Literary Journal, The Guerrilla Lit Mag., Soboghoso Press, and Punch Drunk Press, among others.  My first full-length collection of poetry, All Through Your Multiple Selves (Spartan / Luchador Press) was released in 2020.
