Chicago, IL – “My first book of poetry, Vocoder (Roof 2001), received a starred review in Publishers Weekly and a positive reviewed in Boston Review and was given a “Book of the Year” award by Small Press Traffic in 2002.  My second book, DeathStar/Rico-chet (O Books 2006), received a boxed review in Publishers Weekly and a review in Rain Taxi.  I am currently finishing a third collection, l.b.; or, catenaries, to be published by Krupskaya in Spring 2010. My work has been anthologized in: An Anthology of New (American) Poets (Talisman 1996); Enough (O Books 2003); Bay Poetics (Faux Press 2005); The &Now Awards in Innovative Writing (&Now 2009); and Against Expression: An Anthology of Conceptual Writing (Make Now Books 2010).  It has also recently appeared in a number of print and online journals, including: Moonlit, Sous Rature, onedit, Parameter, 580 Split, Model Homes, cannot exist, and fascicle. 

In 2007, I earned my Ph.D. in the Department of English and Comparative Literature at Columbia University.  I am currently a Collegiate Assistant Professor and Harper Schmidt Fellow at the University of Chicago, where I teach in the arts humanities core program and in the Creative Writing Department.”
