I am a writer, a teacher, a husband, and a father.
I fell in love with writing ever since I wrote my first short story at the age of 12 and my first poem in high school. My free-verse has appeared in the literary e-zine Pif. My haibun has been published in Failed Haiku, Cattails, Haibun Today, Contemporary Haibun Online (CHO) and Contemporary Haibun, CHO’s annual print anthology. I am honored to be a part of the Image Curve community as a contributing poet. I am also happy to be a performance poet with Rockland Poetry (formerly Suffern Poetry) in Suffern, NY.
I have worked as a special education teacher in New York City High Schools for the past twenty years.
l live in Montebello, NY with my amazing wife, Mira, and our beloved son, Frank. When I’m not writing, I meditate, hike, practice tai chi and geek out to Star Wars and Marvel Cinema.
