Greetings. I am a writer from Denver, Colorado. My fiction has appeared in Literary Orphans and Litro Magazine. If you scroll down a little ways, you’ll find links to the stories that were published in those journals. While you’re there, I encourage you to check out what other fiction, poetry and essays they have to offer.
I am currently a candidate at the MFA Program for Writers at Warren Wilson College.
After moving back to the States from New Zealand, I worked at an elementary school, a bookstore, and an art house cinema. I then spent a number of years traveling to and working in such places as Seattle, Missouri, Texas, New Orleans, Southern Oregon, Michigan, and California. My wife and I have a penchant for stepping away to do some exploring. We especially like Poland and Ireland and a little hotel in Gallup, NM where film crews used to stay while they shot their westerns. In 2016, we 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 Ralph 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.” Perhaps our reasoning fell somewhere in there.
We now have a little daughter, whom we spend our evenings with cooking and listening to music. At the moment, she is particularly fond of ABBA.
Drop me a line.
