I’m a writer and teacher residing in Denver, Colorado. I am made of Michigan waters and Colorado sunshine. Both places feel like home, but the 300+ days of sunshine and Rocky Mountain lifestyle have kept me rooted in the Denver area for 20 years.
I hold an M.A. in English from the University of Colorado Denver, where I have taught undergraduate composition and rhetoric for more than a dozen years.
I write and publish lyric essay, flash nonfiction, poetry, and experimental thingies that resist classification.
My creative work has been featured in Longreads, Hippocampus Magazine, Motherwell Magazine, Word Riot, Shadowbox Magazine, Statement, Gertrude Press, and Brevity blog and is forthcoming in Literary Mama. My essay, “Maybe We Can Make a Circle” was nominated for the Pushcart Prize by Hippocampus Magazine.
