As a poet I have been published worldwide in around two dozen literary journals from the recent start-up Mimesis (where my digital chapbook In Travel was a runner up in their 2008 contest) to the more prestigious Cimarron Review. I'm also a novelist, currently querying my first young adult project. As a photographer, I'm an experimentalist and a minimalist, with my only formal training being a high school drawing & painting class. I grew up near Portland, Maine and hold a B.A. in Classics from Connecticut College in New London, Connecticut. I currently live in Austin, Texas, where I work as an indie bookseller and literature advocate.
