Before my words made it into print, I snapped the Eyesore of the Week for the Queens Ledger. Now I spit wine for a living, but sometimes I swig. Consider me as a chaperone for winemakers or a vinous gondolier. I'm always scoping out the planet's best Barolo. My recent stuff has appeared in The Missing Slate, New Pop Lit, Origami, Gravel, Octavius Magazine, Writer's Digest, Newtown Literary, Monkeybicycle, The Vehicle, and The Main Street Rag. My debut novel Shades of Luz published by All Things That Matter Press is modern day Don Quixote. My followup Disposable Heroes is a Soccer Novel Thriller with lots of cerveza. I earned my MFA in Creative Writing from Pacific University in Forest Grove, Oregon.
