I am a poet, translator, critic and editor. I was appointed at Edge Hill University in January 2008, having previously taught undergraduate and postgraduate courses in creative writing, translation theory, film, cultural studies, comparative literature, and contemporary American and British literature at the University of South Florida and, as the Visiting Poet-in-Residence, at Florida Southern College. I gained a distinction in my MA in Creative Writing at the University of South Florida, where I also completed a BA in Philosophy and studied for a PhD (ABD) in English Literature and Literary Translation.
My individual poems, essays, and reviews, as well as my translations from the German by Friedrich Dürrenmatt, Georg Trakl and Robert Walser, have appeared or are forthcoming in numerous magazines, journals, and anthologies, including Absinthe: New European Writing, The Baltimore Review, The Cortland Review, Gradiva: International Journal of Italian Poetry, Guernica Magazine, Italian Americana, Jacket, The Mailer Review, Poetry Salzburg Review, Versal, Verse Daily, and 32 Poems Magazine. My most recent works include In an Abandoned Room: Selected Poems by Georg Trakl (Erbacce Press, 2008), The Possible Is Monstrous: Selected Poems by Friedrich Dürrenmatt, The Oldest Hands in the World, and Oppressive Light: Selected Poems by Robert Walser (all from Black Lawrence Press/Dzanc Books, 2010-12), Mass Graves (XIX-XXII) and Mass Graves: City of Now (both from The Knives, Forks and Spoons Press, 2011-12).
