My debut collection, Hearsay, won the 2014 Jean Feldman Prize, and was a finalist for the 2015 Ohioana Book Award for Poetry. My work most recently appeared at Boston Review and Fledgling Rag. My poems have appeared in many journals, including Gulf Coast, Hayden’s Ferry, Prairie Schooner, and Tupelo Quarterly.

I live in Annapolis, Maryland, with his wife and two young sons; I am an Associate Professor of English at College of Southern Maryland.

I am at work on my second collection, Dear Irreverence.

Your support gives me vital inspiration as I write for thirty days this month.

Tupelo Press provides the canvas, I bring my words, accompanied by other fine poets, writing thirty poems in thirty days, all ours to edit and submit as we wish. 30/30 poems have been taken by over 90 journals and featured in over 40 published chapbooks, all so Tupelo Press can keep publishing exquisite and diverse voices that might never be heard otherwise.

Every dollar gives me confidence to write more, and helps the press place more poems in gorgeous books. Help me to help this distinguished press. Give today!
