I specialize in research writing and creative writing and currently teach ENG 104, creative writing, and poetry here at Ball State. My poems, essays, and short stories have appeared in several journals including Poetry, Tar River Poetry, Art Times, Haight Ashbury Literary Journal, Lullwater Review, Cape Rock Review, Country Journal, River Review, and the Indianapolis Star among others. In 1995 I was selected by James Dickey as winner of the Eve of St. Agnes Poetry Prize. I've been a finalist in several national poetry contests including The Anthony Hecht poetry prize and the National Poetry Series. I've twice been a featured poet on Poetry Magazine's website, and I'm the author of two books, Dada and Surrealism for Beginners from Random House, and American Future, a collection of poems, from Entasis Press. Along with research and creative writing, I also enjoy art and philosophy.
