I was raised in New York City and the Bahamas. I have a BA in Creative Writing from Carnegie Mellon University and an MA in Philosophy from The New School for Social Research.
My collection of poetry, "Waking From So Rich A Nightmare," was published by Cherry Grove Collections in 2015. My poetry and fiction have appeared in many publications, including MASS Poetry, Mudfish, The South Carolina Review, The Oakland Review, Ghost Ocean Magazine, r.kv.r.y, ALittlePoetry.com, The Lullwater Review and others.
I write professionally about architecture and design. Articles have appeared in New England Fine Living, Vineyard Style, and other publications. I am the co-author of New York Living: Re-Inventing Home, published by Rizzoli in 2017.
My poem, "The Docks", has been transformed into song and recorded by the wildly popular Vienna-based duo, Catch-Pop String-Strong.
Writing residencies and awards include The Virginia Center for the Creative Arts, Mt. San Angelo, Virginia; The Noepe Center, Martha’s Vineyard, Massachusetts; The Dorland Mountain Arts Colony, Temecula, California; The Banff Center for the Creative Arts/The Leighton Artists’ Colony, Banff, Canada; Academy of American Poets Award, “Best New College Poet”, awarded by Donald Hall; Bennington College Writers-in-Residence program; The Massachusetts State Poetry Prize, awarded by the University of Massachusetts.
