I'm a poet who lives and works in Minneapolis, and my collection Starting Again is forthcoming from Finishing Line Press.

This site introduces you to some of my writing.

The site also shares the kind of background about me I'm curious to learn about other authors when I go hear them read or perform.

Along with a sample of my poetry published in various journals you'll find reviews I've written, a list of favorite poets, and a list of what I've read that's left lasting impressions.

To engage and play with words, open myself to the words of others, search for entry points to delve deeper into things—these are what keep me going. Maybe it's the same for you—whether through words or another medium.
