Professional Experience

I freelance as the Bluestone Scribe. My stories, poetry, articles, and miscellany have been published in anthologies, magazines, zines, and blogs. Though I mainly employ myself as an English Instructor and Copy-Editor, my passion is art or really anything that thrusts me into the mysterious expanses of language. I earned my BA in Comparative Literature at George Mason University and my MLitt in Creative Writing at the University of St. Andrews in Scotland. I live in scenic upstate New York and take daily hikes into the woods with my wee family.
