Poetry

I write poetry, and have written all of my life.

I write about intimacy, desire, fertility, and the intersections of science and experience. 

Adjacent to my own work, I am the Poetry Editor for The Signal House Edition

and volunteer for Poet in the City as part of their audio team, recording for their digital archive.

Between 2003 - 2007, I self-published four chapbooks: At that Age (2003), testing theories (2005), In the Telling of a Love Story (2007), and Flourish (2007). In the Telling of a Love Story was re-published as part of my Made With Love campaign to raise funds for my PhD in 2013.

 

I am also a proud graduate of the California State Summer School for the Arts (CSSSA), 2001 and 2002.
