Welcome! My poetry chapbook Pulse was published by Ghost City Press in 2018 and is available for free online. My poems, essays, and articles have appeared or are forthcoming in Alpinist magazine, Bad Pony, Borderlands: Texas Poetry Review, Calamity, Entropy, Frontier Poetry, Ghost Proposal, Muse /A Journal, Poetry South, Sugar House Review, Voicemail Poems, and elsewhere. I’m currently a student in Colorado State University’s MFA program in creative writing, where I was awarded the 2018 Academy of American Poets Prize.
I also work at CSU as the managing editor of Colorado Review and as a creative writing instructor. I’ve previously taught creative writing through Duke University’s Talent Identification Program and worked as an editor for Alpinist magazine. As a certified yoga instructor, I sometimes teach yoga classes, though that’s taken a backseat to my writing as of late. I also enjoy rock climbing, cooking, eating/drinking, traveling, skiing, hiking, camping, and spending time outside with my dog and fiancé. Originally from North Carolina, where I earned by BA in English and creative writing at UNC-Chapel Hill (GDTBATH every day!), I’ve called the Mountain West my home since 2013.
