I wake up for poetry. My poetry has appeared in twelve countries in such publications as The Cannon's Mouth, Poetry Salzburg Review, Ascent Aspirations, generations and Write On!!! A graduate from the University of Tennessee- Knoxville, I have studied poetry in workshop settings. As a hobby, I collect places I have been published.
In my work I juxtapose concrete images with abstract notions, often write in structures such as non-rhyming couplets and triadic verse, stress economy, and utilize such literary conceits as the ekphrastik poem, parallel structure, and the incorporation of mythology within my work.
