I'm currently working on a dissertation that examines the state of American poetry in the twenty-first century: broadly speaking, I'm interested in ideas of value and aesthetics, how poets and readers make certain claims for poetry in these post-death times. I also write poetry online, and I keep up appearances at various blogs and sites (most recently Flood Magazine). One of my recreational projects at the moment is The Laughing Magician, a reading guide to the DC comic series Hellblazer. I'm more of a Donkey Kong fan than a Galaga man.
