I was born and raised in a very small town in upstate New York. My first time leaving the state was when I left to attend UCA as part of the freshman class of 2000. I graduated from UCA with my Bachelors degree in the fall of 2005 and immediately started working on my MFA which I completed in 2008. During that time I met and married my wife, Melissa, who was a nursing student at UCA.

We had our first child, a son, in early 2012 and we still live in Texas. However, we both ultimately want to be back in central Arkansas where it still feels like home.
