I wrote, edited and co-produced the horror comedy feature film Swarm of the Snakehead, and worked as a writer on the unfairly maligned videogame Damnation. I co-wrote the interactive video simulation Blaster with Frank Lama, to help U.S. Army Explosive Ordnance Disposal Company Commanders and Team Leaders prepare for deployment to a war zone. I am also the Hurwitz in the hard workin', fun lovin', songwritin' team Moran Hill Hurwitz.
I have taught writing at the University of Houston, Houston Community College, Writers in the Schools, and Johns Hopkins University's Center for Talented Youth in Los Angeles. I am a proud and grateful recepient of Maryland State Individual Artist Awards for both fiction and poetry.
I have a B.A. in English and Philosophy from Franklin & Marshall College, earned a Master of Fine Arts in Poetry from Sarah Lawrence College, and was a Teaching Fellow in the Graduate Program in Creative Writing at The University of Houston. While in Houston, I wrote about art and music for the Houston Press and was a poetry editor of the literary journal Gulf Coast.
