I’m a poet all the way out at the end of the road in Alaska that has been working on and off for arts nonprofits for the last fifteen years. My poetry collection Pause, Traveler was published by Boreal Books, an imprint of Red Hen Press, in 2013, and my new collection Every Atom is forthcoming from the same press in 2018.I received my MFA in writing poetry from the Rainier Writers Workshop at Pacific Lutheran University in 2009. I was the Rona Jaffe Scholarship winner for poetry at the Bread Loaf Writers’ Conference in 2010 and a 2013 recipient of a Rasmuson Foundation Fellowship and the Connie Boochever Award. I was lucky enough to be one of the inaugural recipients of the Alaska Literary Award in 2014. I was received a work scholarship for a residency at the Vermont Studio Center, and in 2015, I was in residency at the Willapa Bay AiR.
