Bewildering Stories biography

I have been a number of things in my life. I graduated from Rutgers with honors in English and History. I’ve led several writing workshops, which were completely self-centered attempts to get praise for my work. I’ve worked as a laboratory assistant. I’ve competed in slams, in martial arts demonstrations and in graduate school interviews. But above all, I have been a writer.

I write poetry, essays and fiction. I have several novels that are unfinished either due to sudden paradigm shifts or because they’re terrible. It is my solemn belief that the difference between a good writer and a bad writer is that the good one doesn’t realize his work is awful. Writing is my broken heart, my honeymoon night, my retreat and my exposure. I would want nothing more than to do it for the rest of my life.
