I am a mess of contradictions. I write poetry about punk rock kids, tell readers about bands they should listen to and books they should read, take photos of beautiful moments and places, plan unique events, and repurpose discarded treasures.
I hold Creative Writing degrees from SUNY Purchase (BA) and Wilkes University (MFA) and have been published in kick ass journals such as Dirtcakes, My Favorite Bullet,Out of Our, and Chiron Review (see full pub credits on the poetry page).
Prior to all the fancy education and publication credits, I was raised by rock n’ roll parents who knew the importance of concerts and going past the no trespassing signs. I spent my adolescence in a small town punk rock scene where I moshed, fell in love, and produced a few cut and paste zines.
