My prose poetry collection In This Alone Impulse will be published by Noemi Press in December, 2009. My novel Forecast will be published by Flatmancrooked in Spring, 2010. I received my MFA from Brown University in 2008, where I won the John Hawkes Prize in Fiction. Opium Magazine named a contest in my honor.

I lives in NYC with my girlfriend Erin, a strange man named Matty Harper, and my dog Violet.
