Originally from western New York, I am a graduate of Middlebury College and Boston University’s MFA program in Creative Writing, the latter of which I attended as a Jacob K. Javits Fellow. Following my MFA year, I traveled to Greenland as a Robert Pinsky Global Fellow. My short stories have appeared in The Missouri ReviewSalt Hill, Radio Silence, Flash Art, and Whitefish Review. I live in Pittsburgh with my wife and son.
