Writer

I run a regular poetry workshop that has entered its fourth year. Please come join us! We meet on the fourth Thursday of every month at the Cuyahoga County Public Library.


For more information, please visit their website's event page. The next two will be January 25th and February 22nd!




"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. Literary interests include:

 - Poetry

 - Fantasy/Sci Fi

 - Historical

 - Pre-Raphaelite/Victorian

 - Writing informed by the French Revolution

 - Jane Austen & Henry James


If you share any of these interests or simply want to reach out:
