Academic, Teaching and Personal Interests

I write fiction in the form of short stories, plays and long prose. My collection of short stories, Mistakes, was my final manuscript for Goddard College’s MFA in Creative Writing Program. Music is an essential part of my creative process, and the guitar is my instrument of choice. As an instructor I strive to guide students towards producing writing that is as successful and organic as possible.
