About

I live on the coast of the Salish Sea. My poems have appeared in Narrative, Orion, Missouri Review, Rattle, Radar, and Carolina Quarterly. Long Way Through Ruin was published by Blue Begonia Press. My second poetry collection will be published by Lost Horse Press in 2021.

I'm grateful for residencies and awards from Ucross, PLAYA, Artists Trust, and Joya AIR (Spain). For many years I made documentary films, and my first film No Place Like Home premiered at the Venice Film Festival, in Italy. I’m currently at work on a memoir, Why I Grieve I Do Not Know.

I’ve worked as a waitress, shipscaler, short-order cook, bookseller, printer, food bank coordinator, filmmaker, and freelance writer.
