About Me


Born in San Diego, California, I have lived in Erie, Pennsylvania for as long as I can remember. I am a proud product of all that the Erie area has to offer: graduate of Fort LeBoeuf High School, Penn State-Behrend, and Mercyhurst College. I live and work in the city of Erie, my wife Dawn is a graduate of Gannon and LECOM, and my older son Khylinn is currently wrapping up his freshman year at Mercyhurst. Griffin, my younger son, debates and plays lacrosse for McDowell High School. I have made Erie my home, my life, and my future, and I am humbled and honored to serve as its Poet Laureate.
