I grew up in Texas, but currently live and write in Philadelphia. I believe that we create ourselves through the stories we tell, and that is what I aim to do every day.

I am the owner and Editor-in-Chief of Atticus Review and the author of THIS IS NOT A CONFESSION, published by Awst Press in 2016.

My work has appeared in publications that include Cosmonauts AvenueThe Nervous BreakdownAwst PressThe Austin Review, The Rappahannock ReviewCrate, and others.

take photos every day. A good many of these photos are of my dogs. Living with canines has helped me be a better human.
