Academic Appointments

Lecturer in the Masters of Arts in Liberal Studies Program

My latest book project Experiment 116 is available now from Counterpath Press. I wrote a novella called Nick Trail's Thumb that was selected by Lydia Davis for the Kore Press Short Fiction Award and published by Kore Press. I have a poetry chapbook called half-fabulous whales (Little Dipper, 2019) that is sold out but there's a digital version that you can print and fold and make your own chapbook here.
