I'm the author of a short story collection, The Weather in Fritz Bemelmans Park (Equus Press, 2015). My fiction has been anthologized in The Return of Kral Majales (Litteraria Pragensia Press, 2010) and the Triples Series (Ravenna Press, 2013); and has appeared in many literary journals, including McSweeney's, Torpedo, The Brooklyn Rail, elimae, Diagram Journal (which awarded me its 2007 Innovative Fiction award), Vlak, and many others.
In 2009 I received a Fulbright Scholarship in creative writing (2010-2011) to research a novel set in Central Europe. I have taught writing at the college level since 2006, with fiction and nonfiction workshops at Brown University, Grub Street Boston, Borough of Manhattan Community College (CUNY), Pratt Institute, and, in Prague, the University of New York–Prague and Anglo-American University. In Fall 2016, I'll be teaching courses at Rollins College and Valencia College in Florida.
I've been a freelance copy editor and proofreader for over a decade, working with The American Association of Advertising Agencies, Verso, Scribner, Bloomsbury, Scholastic, Cengage/Pearson, S4 Carlisle, and other publishers/organizations. I have worked with many individual clients on projects ranging from nonfiction books in all subjects, to novels, story collections, theses, dissertations, and numerous academic essays.
In my creative life, in addition to writing, I've been a visual artist my entire life and have had work exhibited at galleries in New York City, Boston, Prague, and Orlando.
