I was born and raised in Cincinnati, Ohio in a large, working class, Catholic family. I have been writing for most of my life, but more intensely for the past several years (about 250 poems per year, more or less). My poetry seems to be focused on the natural beauty that surrounds me (which I notice more and more every year) and my Catholic faith. My favorite writer is Thomas Merton. I hope you like my work and will let me know either way!
