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 recipient 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. I was also in a band.
