He currently lives in Baltimore, where he has taught English and creative writing for more than 40 years. A former winner of a Baltimore Artscape Literary Arts Award, he has had poetry appear in publications such as California Quarterly, Borderlands:Texas Poetry Review, The Connecticut River Review, and most recently, Garrison Keillor’s The Writer’s Almanac.
