Originally from the San Francisco Bay Area, I now reside in Tennessee by way of eastern Washington, Oregon's Willamette Valley, and eastern Kansas. I write poetry and reviews and teach writing at the University of Tennessee where I am a Ph.D. student in English and serve as Poetry Editor for Grist: The Journal for Writers. I've received the James Wright Poetry Award, been nominated for a Pushcart Prize, and my work has recently appeared or is forthcoming in Best New Poets 2009, Verse Daily,Third Coast, Hayden's Ferry Review,Fourteen Hills, Mid-American Review, New South, Southern Poetry Review, 32 Poems, Copper Nickel, and elsewhere.
