Welcome. I'm a Brooklyn-based poet, playwright and educator. There's more information about my work throughout this site, but about me:  I grew up in central Maine next to a pond thick with cattails. I'm a loud eater & a quiet listener. I believe in the elasticity of language. Thank you for visiting. 

News: After an exciting and successful World Premiere of Bathsheba's Psalms, I'm heading to the Monson Arts Residency for a month in June. I'm looking forward to meeting the fellow writers and artists there, and to have more poems to share.
