I have an M.F.A. in poetry. These days I mostly write in prose.
My writing has appeared in Yoga Journal, where I was a senior editor, Tricycle, Shambhala Sun (now Lion’s Roar), Orion, Wild Hope, Washington Post, HuffPost, and numerous literary magazines, including Willow Springs, Manoa, New Orleans Review, The Big Ugly Review, and Yellow Silk.
I was born in Detroit and grew up in the Midwest. I’ve lived some amazing places: New Orleans, Beijing, and (last and longest) the San Francisco Bay Area.
I’ve hiked across the Grand Canyon twice, skied the Vallée Blanche, and cycled to the top of the Col du Tourmalet but I’m just as thrilled walking the dog in my neighborhood or behind a good book.
