I spent my childhood wandering aimlessly through the mountains of Northern California. My work has been nominated for Best of the Net and the Rhysling Award. I am a regular contributor for Headline Poetry & Press and a reader for Palette Poetry When I am not writing, I play my guitar to my unreasonably large Highlander cat, Bear. Due to my obsessive personality, I occasionally over-analyze the details of neighboring trees.
With roots in folklore, various mythologies, and modern pop-culture—especially music, my writing explores the implications of reader reception, feminism, socioeconomic inequality, the physics of time, and a broad technological discourse. I live with Fibromyalgia, and Bipolar I, and these often creep into my writing, as well. Occasionally, I write love poems and these mean nothing.
