From a working class family in the American Midwest with five brothers and three sisters, I grew up between Chicago and St. Louis. Educated in the U.K. and the United States, I divide my time between both countries.
My poetry has been published in both countries. Further, I have been a featured poet at the Poetry Café and Torriano Meeting House. Poetry Unplugged, Poetry at Three, Fourth Friday, and the Troubadour are venues where I present poetry.
