About Me

by day, i help my toddler form, from a previously unintelligible mash of sound, words such as 'potty' and 'elbow.' i revert into my own intricate gibberish, sometimes writing it down, after everyone else is fast asleep.

publications include denver quarterly, hotel amerika, puerto del sol, cadillac cicatrix, evergreen chronicles.

mfa, 2004, school of the art institute of chicago.

ba, 2000, university of nebraska-lincoln.

Why do you write?

cameras (mine and others'). funny trees. li li xiang tea. mahler. woolf. galleries. nightmares. transcendental baths. walks. fear. yarn. many of the same any-things collected together. archaeology. the difference between one stone wet and the same stone dry. natural disaster. frailty. elevator buttons. laundry. longing. how things sound. etc.
