I received my MFA from Old Dominion University and my BA from Johns Hopkins University. I have published poems in numerous online and academic journals including Bayou, The Pinch, Slant, Anderbo, Bluestem, DIALOGIST, Fourth River Review, Glassworks, Flare: The Flagler Review, Pif Magazine, and Hawaii Pacific Review, among others. I won the Pocataligo Poetry Prize and was nominated for a Pushcart.  I have two poems forthcoming in The Tulane Review in Fall 2018.
