Bald, bearded, bespectacled and bookish, fascinated by words and sounds, by tastes and smells, and by matters Fortean and weird, it's no wonder I ended up a poet. There's not anything else that allows me to mix-and-match my interests in the same way.

I earned my MFA at Lesley University's low-residency program in 2017, and have recently started an alumni organization for the benefit of that program along with Robbie Gamble (himself an excellent poet) and Rex Arrasmith. If you want to know what life is like in this program, contact me!

I'm also the Associate Editor of the Naugatuck River Review, a journal of narrative verse that sings. (Send us your best narrative verse!)

My wife and I live in Western MA, tucked between forest and farmland in a city rich in cultural opportunities and used bookstores. Little Fritz, our Miniature Schnauzer, keeps us consistently amused and perplexed.
