More About the Author

Faking sick as a 12-year-old I found myself at home listening to Guns N' Roses with nothing really to do. After exploring my mother's old high school text books she stored in the basement I came upon the book "The Pageant of Literature: 20th Century Writers." In blue ballpoint pen, written in the margin in my mother's high school handwriting was the message "Noted for his poetry" next to Rainer Maria Rilke's name. Based purely out of my fascination with the name "Rainer Maria Rilke" I flipped to his page in the book and found the poem "Autumn." The poem was short and simple and something in that moment made sense. Sitting on that basement floor I began to feel the need to write. So with Axl Rose in one ear and Rilke in the other I began writing my first uneasy poems. During my difficult high school career poetry kept me alive.

I went onto to receive my Bachelor of Arts in Writing, Literature, and Publishing from Emerson College and later received my MFA in poetry from Lesley University. My poems have appeared in The Worcester Review, Sahara: A Journal of New England Poetry, The Grolier Poetry Prize Annual, and have been nominated for a Pushcart Prize. My poetry chapbook "Morning" is available through Finishing Line Press and was recently nominated for a Massachusetts Book Award. I live with my wife Virginia in Watertown, MA.
