I have lived across the US, from New York to Kansas to Arizona and Alaska then back east to New Jersey, working at times as a laborer, counselor for at-risk youth, or neighborhood activist. I live, for now, in Coburg, Victoria, Australia I hold an MFA from Syracuse, where I was my landlord's maintenance man and a University Fellow, the school's top award for writers. I previously earned a Master of Creative Writing from the University of Auckland. My two poetry collections are available online. Some of my poems abide there, as well, or in various print journals.
