I write poetry and teach in Syracuse, NY. I've taught in public schools, universities, and community organizations since 2012. My MFA is from Syracuse University. I'm the author of Remains (2020) and The Pigs (forthcoming 2023).
Remains is a book of documentary poetry based on the life of my mother, who died in a bizarre car accident in 1995. The poems are written from interviews, letters, news clippings, and pictures I've collected over the years.
The Pigs is a long poem about identity and change. Part one of The Pigs will be published by Dead Mall Press in 2023.
I like to talk with other poets about their writing and have published a collection of our conversations.
I'm currently teaching at the Downtown Writers Center in Syracuse, NY, an organization that offers fantastic, accessible writing classes for writers at any point in their writing life.
