I'm excited that I was a finalist for the Winter-Spring 2017 Brooklyn Poets Fellowship, and that some of my poems have been or will be published by a few online publications. So far, you can read them at Brooklyn Poets, in between hangovers, Reform Judaism, and The Vein.

Here is a choice of poems that have received generous exposure as Poem of the Day on Brooklyn Poets' social media: (Not sure if the links to Facebook are working)

Erev Sukkot
After the Lake
The Last Night in Buenos Aires
There Goes the Future American President
Night Train to Chicago

More to come soon :)

Since becoming a full time administrator, I haven't posted anything but that's a good thing! However, it's time for a brief recap and an updated resume.
I've had the pleasure to work with two acclaimed German documentary filmmakers, Jobst Knigge and Michael Gregor, for their documentaries about Stalin's Daughter and theories of falsifications of classic art, respectively.
