I am an American poet and translator based in Edinburgh. My work has appeared in The Adroit Journal, AGNI, Asymptote, The London Magazine, The Los Angeles Review, and The National Poetry Review, among many others. And my translation of Portuguese poet João Luís Barreto Guimarães's collection, Mediterranean, won the 2020 Willow Run Poetry Book Award and is forthcoming from Hidden River Arts. When I'm not writing or translating, I can be found parenting and studying. I'm currently pursuing a PhD in Communication, Rhetoric, & Digital Media from NC State University; I received an MA in English & Comparative Literature from UNC-Chapel Hill; and I hold an MFA in Creative Writing from Boston University, where I hit the lottery and studied under Robert Pinsky, David Ferry, and Nobel laureate Louise Glück.
