My first poetry book, Excerpts from a Natural History, is now available from Titus Books and Amazon!
So long as one considered the universe as the complete expression of total fullness, it could inspire nothing but banality and rhetoric, but if one thought of it as something made from very little, a poor thing scratched together on the edge of nothingness, it excited sympathy and encouragement, or at least a benevolent curiosity as to whatever might come of it. — Italo Calvino
For a while now, I've been scratching things together on the edge of nothingness. Which is to say, I’m a poet. I hail from metro Detroit, have lived in Los Angeles and New Zealand, and currently splice words and ideas into ghastly new creations on a little island called Singapore.
In addition to Excerpts from a Natural History, my fiction and poetry have been published in literary journals in the US, Canada, Australia, and New Zealand and nominated for the Pushcart Prize. And I’m always working on new projects.
I’m also a freelance academic copy-editor. If you need editing, I’m a nitpicky pain in the arse. (That second clause is not actually conditional on the first, but it’s useful information.) You might want to hire me before you send that thing you’ve written to a journal.
