A graduate of the Iowa Writers’ Workshop, my honors include a 2015 “Discovery”/ Boston Review prize from the 92nd Street Y and fellowships from the Fine Arts Work Center in Provincetown, MA, the MacDowell Colony, and the Vermont Studio Center. My poems have appeared in The Boston Review, The Iowa Review, jubilat, B O D Y, Michigan Quarterly Review, New Orleans Review, and elsewhere.

Before moving back to California in early 2017, I taught undergraduate writing courses at the University of Iowa. I teach creative writing courses for Stanford Pre-Collegiate Studies and I teach online poetry courses for high school students via the Iowa Young Writers' Studio. Starting in Fall 2019, I’ll teach at Castilleja School in Palo Alto.
