I received a 2009 NEA Fellowship in Creative Writing, as well as a grant from the Connecticut Commission on Culture & Tourism. I am also the author of four full-length collections of poetry: The Man on the Tower (which won the Arkansas Poetry Award ” University of Arkansas Press, 1995), Where the Glories of April Lead (Mitki/Mitki Press, 2001), During the Beauty Shortage (M2 Press, 2005), and A Less Fabulous Infinity (Louisiana Literature Press, 2006). I have placed poems The Southern Review, Measure, TriQuarterly, Quarterly West, Massachusetts Review, Phoebe: The George Mason Review, DoubleTake, Poems & Plays, and Louisiana Literature. My work has also appeared in several anthologies, including American Poetry: The Next Generation (Carnegie Mellon University Press), Rhyming Poems: A Contemporary Anthology (University of Evansville Press), and Sonnets: 150 Contemporary Sonnets (University of Evansville Press). By day, I work as an editor for a technology consulting firm. I live in Sandy Hook, Connecticut, with my wife and two daughters.
