He attended the University of Rochester where he studied English and Medieval Studies and received his MFA from Penn State University in 2008. He is currently at work on a novel, Sleepwalkers of the North Atlantic, a dark comic picaresque gothic (a genre he created, just now, while writing this bio in the third person) about a caddy, a Boston socialite, New England’s colonial history, King Phillip’s War and the early constructions of American Identity—as well as golf and rum.

He is a Visiting Assistant Professor of English at the College of the Holy Cross. He can be reached at
