My novel I Know Where I Am When I'm Falling was published in 2014. Other stories can be found in Ploughshares, Moxie, The Christian Science Monitor, Rattapallax, Northern Virginia Review, Main Street Rag, Phoebe, So To Speak and elsewhere.  I've written and edited art listings for The New Yorker, evaluated scripts for NBC, taught at various colleges around the world including Lenguas Vivas in Argentina and The American University of Rome, and worked as a bookseller at Politics and Prose in DC. I currently run two book discussion groups for Fairfax County Public Library and have a weekly podcast Read Me A Poem with The American Scholar.
