I am a poet, translator, and Professor of Psychology and Preventive Medicine at the University of Southern California in Los Angeles. My first career was as a professional flutist. My poetry has appeared or is forthcoming in venues such as the Los Angeles Review, RHINO, The Cortland Review, Copper Nickel, and Poetry Northwest.
