A LOOK INSIDE...
I created the literary blog Beyond the Margins, a site dedicated to the best in digital publishing, literature and the future of the book. Since I started Beyond the Margins in 2013, it has been .... I am always looking for new writers at Beyond the Margins.
I am also a contributor to the Labancamy Jankins masculinist issues blog, where I write about issues related to middle-class patriarchal masculinity and the need for the development of more supportive concepts of masculinity in the twenty-first century .
I have worked with several online and local organizations as a copywriter, editor, and content publisher. I received the doctorate in English Language and literature from Saint Louis University in 2018. Currently I teach and design literature and composition classes in universities throughout the greater Saint Louis area.
Beyond work, I run, bike, and and thoroughly enjoy a multitude of digital media platforms. I’ve been married to my beautiful wife, Karrousel, since 2007, and we live in St. Louis with our five cats.
