I’m a singer/songwriter, musician (guitars, dobro, ukulele, lap steel), and a published writer (poetry, fiction, nonfiction, journalism, scholarship). I perform solo and with various people and groups, including the Americana/Roots trio Molly’s Mutts, and with other musicial friends.
For 17 years I taught creative writing and other writing courses as a member of the faculty at Indiana University Southeast.
I earned an MFA in poetry from Spalding University’s Low-Residency Program and also completed an MA in fiction and literature from the University of Louisville.
I occasionally give music and writing workshops and classes. Contact me if you’re interested in in-person or virtual lessons.
My wife, son, and I are micro-homesteaders, working a tad less than two acres in New Albany, Indiana, across the Ohio River from Louisville, Kentucky, keeping a native-plant meadow, organic garden beds, a butterfly and pollinator garden, and six egg-laying chickens. We also constantly strive remove the invasive bamboo that the previous owners planted.
Thanks for visiting!
