I grew up in Greenbelt, Maryland and now live in Brookline, Massachusetts. I received a B.A. in English from the University of Maryland in 1997 and an M.F.A. in Creative Writing from Emerson College in 1999.
I write poetry, literary criticism, and general nonfiction, in which I share my enthusiasm for literature, history, politics, Judaism, and nature. My work has been published in several magazines. I have self-published two poetry collections--Minutes From A One-Man Meeting and Mystical Symphony--and a business writing guide entitled Topline, Bottom Line through Lulu.com.
I work as a research coordinator at Boston University's Office of Development and Alumni Relations, and I moonlight as a tutor and freelance editor. I have taught poetry workshops at the Brookline Community Center for the Arts.
