I am a writer and artist of hybrid mediums, currently teaching creative writing, fiction workshops, and literature courses at Champlain College and the Vermont College of Fine Arts, as well as visual arts and writing courses at the Shelburne Craft School in Vermont. I have an MFA in creative nonfiction writing from the Iowa Writers Workshop, and a BFA in poetry and printmaking from the University of Vermont. MIT Press has just published my book of experimental literary translation, Walter Benjamin Reimagined. Several of my books in various mediums have been published: my graphic memoir, The Highs and Lows of Shapeshift Ma and Big-Little Frank, with Gold Wake Press; a book of poems and paintings, Tropicalia, with Vagabond Press; and a collection of poems, Uranian Fruit, with Honeybee Press. Shorter pieces of mine have recently been published in Vice, Prompt Press, The Iowa Review, The Examined Life Journal, Edible Magazine, Electric Lit, and Vol. 1 Brooklyn. I was born in Utah and have since lived in Oregon, Vermont, California, Maine, Iowa, Italy, Guatemala, France, and Mexico making art and writing books. I have also worked as an editorial intern and contributor at McSweeney’s Quarterly, The Believer, The Lucky Peach, and The Iowa Review.
