Originally from New Jersey, I have a BA from Moravian College in Studio Art and English, with a concentration in Writing and an MFA from University of California, Riverside in Creative Writing and Writing for the Performing Arts with a concentration in Poetry. I edited CRATE for two years and helped out with layout and design (and unasked for advice) for a while. I’m not sure if the magazine still exists. I volunteer for Poetry Northwest as a reader and occasionally sit at the table to chat and sell magazines.
I am currently working on several projects, including a crocheted/knit crazy-quilt (exchanging squares with my lovely sister) and an ever expanding inquiry into ether. I climb, kind of a lot. I live in Seattle, WA.
