Get in Touch

I love talking about fatherhood, son-hood, and the digital world. Give me a shout. Invite me to talk to your campus, community, conference, or online group. C'mon, what's stopping you?

About Me

I am a genre nomad, working my way through poetry, fiction, nonfiction, film, and digital media, and seeking my inspiration in the seams between them. daddylabyrinth derives from my long-term interest in those borderlands. 

I have three print books out: the prize-winning short story collection Wifeshopping (2008) and of two sets of prose poems, The Birth of Trigonometry in the Bones of Olduvai (2013) and Thirty-One Octets: Incantations and Meditations (2014). Other work, ranging from short stories to criticism, has appeared in such venues as Mississippi Review, Puerto del Sol, Gulf Coast, American Book Review, and Witness

I’ve taught creative writing and film at the University of Colorado at Boulder, the College of the Holy Cross, and the Lighthouse Writers Workshop in Denver. I am currently an assistant professor of English at South Dakota State University. Visit me at ​ or via Facebook or Twitter
