About Me

I grew up in Middle Tennessee, just north of Nashville on the Kentucky border. I attended George Mason University, graduated in '06 with a degree in creative writing. I have worked as the assistant editor of a financial trade magazine and done some freelance writing. Currently I live in Nairobi, Kenya where I work with tea farmers and eat a lot of bananas.

Why do you write?

Absurdity, acceptance, factoids.

I write because it steadies me.

Any favorite authors? Books?

Gabriel Garcia Marquez, Henry Miller, Lewis Carroll, Robert Penn Warren, Kurt Vonnegut, William Faulkner, Cervantes, John Fante, Alasdair Gray, J.P. Donleavy Etgar Keret, J.D. Salinger, Aidan Higgins, Samuel Beckett, and on and on.
