I was born and raised in New Hampshire, have degrees from Dartmouth College and Harvard Medical School, and have been a pediatrician in inner-city Philadelphia for the past twenty years. In the past several years I have had 850 poems accepted or published by 200 journals. My book, The Patient Presents, was published by The People's Press in Baltimore and a chapbook, "I am going to walk toward the sanctuary," was published by Nepenthe Books/Via Dolorosa Press.
