person in world, with words

Currently on the winding roads that link town to town in India. 

My writing has been published (or is forthcoming) in Ninth Letter, DIALOGIST, Hayden's Ferry Review, Nashville Review, North American Review, Prompt Magazine, The Global Post, and North by Northwestern. My poem, "Funk, Sex, & Chocolate Milk" was a finalist in the James Hearst Poetry Contest. 

I've taught slam poetry, science, yoga, sex-ed, and English as a second languag in Turkey, Iraq, and New York City.

I also paint, bike, and cater retreats.
