"All this could have been avoided if

we aren't doing anything."

- John Ashbery


Hello and welcome to my site!


I'm a writer living in Cleveland with hopes and dreams just like you. For instance, I hope our professional sports teams' successes will artificially inflate my home's equity. I pray my kids have enough normal to survive in society but enough confidence to be abnormal when it counts. And I sincerely wish, just once, I could eat a bowl of Raisin Bran where the raisins are evenly distributed throughout the flakes.


My general interests are writing, running, strategy board & video games, camping, hiking, and gardening. My least favorite activity is tempering my ego with humility—something I've gotten much better at than anyone else in a scant few weeks... unsurprising, given that making improvements to personal character is such a quick and easy process.


My literary interests include:

 - Poetry

 - Fantasy/Sci Fi

 - Historical

 - Pre-Raphaelite/Victorian

 - Writing informed by the French Revolution

 - Jane Austen, Henry James, Faulkner, etc etc


I seek to enter higher education. With the completion of my terminal degree the time is now. If you are aware of any adjunct positions in English or Writing, definitely contact me. My graduate school was low-residency—I am comfortable teaching online.
