My Bio


I am a Doctoral Candidate in the Program for Writers (poetry) at the University of Illinois at Chicago. I am currently at work on my second full-length poetry collection, The Luck of Anhedonia as well as an essay collection, Ohio Lonely. 

I am the author of Small Murders  (New Issues Poetry and Prose, 2006) and several limited-edition, self-published chapbooks. For more information on my creative writing, please visit my website.

I live and work in Chicago, Illinois and reside in the Logan Square neighborhood with my sassy and sweet cat, Sophie Michele.

… and, of course, my Doll Work.
