Introduction
I'm a writer living in the Washington, DC, area. My fiction is forthcoming or has appeared in Virginia Quarterly Review, Hudson Review, Gettysburg Review, Gargoyle, Southampton Review, and the anthologies Writes of Passage: Coming-of-Age Stories and Memoirs From The Hudson Review and Virgin Fiction.  I've taught as a visiting writer with the Pen/Faulkner Foundation Writers in Schools program in DC, and The Hudson Review's similar program in NY. My work has been supported by fellowships from Yaddo and The MacDowell Colony.  My humor and commentary have appeared in the Washington Post, on NPR, and in The Rumpus. I'm working on a novel.
