Welcome. I'm a jack of some trades. A poet, fiction writer, reporter living in Philadelphia, where I earned my MFA in Creative Writing from Temple University. I've taught English in Akko, Israel; sold electricity door-to-door; and waited tables at a Japanese karaoke lounge, among other eclectic posts. Currently, I'm the Assistant Editor of the Jewish Community Voice, a local newspaper covering Southern New Jersey. I subscribe to the power of storytelling in all its diverse forms. When I'm not reading or writing, find me running, playing tennis or having a passionate game of backgammon over a cup of coffee.
