Greetings. I am a writer from Denver, Colorado. My fiction has appeared in Aji Magazine, The Agapanthus Collective, Literary Orphans, and Litro Magazine, and is forthcoming in Valparaiso Fiction Review. If you scroll down a little ways, you’ll find links. Special thanks to The Agapanthus Collective for nominating “There is a Scene in Johnny Guitar” for the 2022 Pushcart Prize Anthology.
I am a candidate at the MFA Program for Writers at Warren Wilson College.
A little about myself:
After moving back to the States from New Zealand, I worked at an elementary school, a bookstore, and an art house cinema. I spent a number of years traveling to and working in such places as Seattle, Missouri, Texas, Southern Oregon, Michigan, and California. In 2016, my wife and I moved to Brooklyn, NY, where we remained for a touch over three years before striking out west and landing back in our hometown. Oh, to be welcomed by old friends and an arid climate! As Robert Penn Warren put it, “For West is where we all plan to go some day. It is where you go when the land gives out and the oldfield pines encroach ... It is where you go when you hear that thar’s gold in them-thar hills. It is where you go to grow up with the country. It is where you go to spend your old age. Or it is just where you go.”
We have two daughters, with whom we spend our evenings cooking and listening to music.
Drop me a line.
