I live in southeast PA between Philadelphia and the Pocono Mountains with my wife, daughters and a loyal dog. I earned an MFA in poetry from Bowling Green State University (Ohio) in 1993 where I was a Richard Devine Fellow. I’ve been editor and/or reader for a few literary journals including the Mid-American Review, Janus and Toad Highway. In 2010 I was selected as the Montgomery County Poet Laureate by Robert Bly. My poems have appeared in a variety of journals including The Literary Review, Painted Bride Quarterly, The Heartland Review, Cortland Review, Wisconsin Review, Sow’s Ear Poetry Review, The Seattle Review, Schuylkill Valley Journal and others. For pay I’m a magazine and website editor. In 2010 I started the Montco Wordshop, a monthly workshop for area poets. I also teach a workshop at Philadelphia’s Musehouse Writing Center. My collection The Trouble with Rivers was published in 2012 by Foothills Publishing and can be ordered here. My favorite dry fly is the Parachute Adams. My favorite nymph is a basic Hare’s Ear with a brass bead. For bass I stick mostly to a Clouser Minnow (no relation) and sometimes a Murry Hellgrammite.
In volume 32 of the Schuylkill Valley Journal, Louis McKee wrote this article about my work.
