I'm a Kentuckian with a strong background in literature and exploring. My resume, however, is polka-dotted, including: urban farmer in Detroit, book buyer in Missoula, radio DJ and music director at WRFL 88.1, library assistant in Lexington (Kentucky), and research assistant in Portland (Maine). I also help operate a non-profit organization called Hey Small Press! which promotes small and independent publishers to public libraries. Sometimes (yearly) I make small collections of poetry in an anthology called Monolith Magazine. At present, I'm working on a master's degree in literature at Harvard.
