I was born and raised in southwest Virginia. I received my MFA in poetry from the University of Alabama. In addition to poetry, I've been prolific in flash fiction and creative nonfiction. Since 2008, I've published music journalism and written bios/press releases for bands. Along the way, I developed my interest in art into creating lyrical abstract paintings and resin work.
I am available for writing, editing, and commissioned art projects.
Writing is a labor of love for me, and it's how I hope to connect to you. Because this writing has paid very little, I often struggle to cover my basic expenses. I am hoping you will show support for me and my work. Even if you just want to buy me a quick cup of coffee today, a small donation will be very impactful to my needs and morale. Thank you.
