I recently returned to writing poetry after a 25-year hiatus. Before that little break, I earned an M.A. in creative writing from Temple University. I was an editor of the Painted Bride Quarterly in the late 80’s and early 90s and am currently a Contributing Editor at Barren Magazine. I live just outside of Philadelphia with my wife and our youngest kid still at home. I am a professed member of the Secular Franciscan Order.
