About Me

I’m a poet, fiction writer, and essayist. I currently serve as Associate Professor of English & Creative Writing at the University of Mary Hardin-Baylor in Belton, Texas. I also edit The Windhover and direct The Windhover Writers’ Festival. When not writing or teaching, I run, read, play piano, listen to music, and play disc golf. My greatest joys are my wife, my son, and my daughter.

I was born in southern Minnesota, but while growing up, I had little interest in the Plains and opens spaces.  A stint at a rural state liberal arts college in southwestern Minnesota, as well as grad-school stints in northwestern Minnesota and southeastern South Dakota changed all that.
