I live and write in New York City. My poems have appeared in Contemporary Ghazals, Blue Lake Review, Burningword Literary Journal and Grape Press. I attended the Writers Studio, an independent creative writing school founded by the poet Philip Schultz. In my final two years, I was a member of Phil’s master class. I earned my graduate and undergraduate degrees at New York University, where I majored in English education and also studied journalism, filmmaking and art history. For many years, I worked as a corporate writer. These days, I devote my writing efforts entirely to poetry.
