A LITTLE ABOUT ME

I'm a British-American poet and essayist living in Miami Beach, FL. I earned a BA in Creative Writing from the University of Roehampton, London, in 2006 and moved to Miami in 2008. After a handful of years roaming as a bartender, art gallery assistant and freelance artist, filling notebooks with poetry, I returned to Miami and earned an MFA degree from Florida International University, where I served as Poetry Editor for Gulf Stream Magazine and taught Introduction to Creative Writing, and Creative Nonfiction. I'm currently an Author Assistant at InnerLasting Lit Arts.
