Author's Bio

In addition to being a Pushcart nominated and Best of the Net nominated poet, I am also the founder and editor-in-chief of Five Oaks Press: I've received residencies from the Vermont Studio Center, the Sundress Academy for the Arts, and the Art Farm. When I'm not teaching or writing, I am usually cycling, kayaking, or renovating my 1968 Airstream camper.
