Since 2004, I have bought and sold important or unusual books, ephemera, and other cultural detritus in all fields. Specialties include modern and contemporary literature; The Beats; poetry; popular culture; esoterica; artists' books; the avant-garde in all its various guises (music to film, art to dance); small journals and magazines (especially those associated with the Mimeo Revolution); letters, manuscripts, and archives; as well as vernacular, folk, and outsider books.
I am a graduate (English/Writing) of Loyola College (Baltimore, MD) and hold a MFA (English/Poetry) from the University of Iowa Writers Workshop. I have attended Rare Book School at both the University of Virginia and UCLA. I am also a graduate of the Colorado Antiquarian Book Seminar (2006), which I attended on a scholarship from the Antiquarian Booksellers' Association of America (ABAA). This summer I am pleased to be returning to CABS as the visiting specialty dealer.
In addition to the Antiquarian Booksellers' Association of America, I am a member of the Independent Online Booksellers' Association, the International League of Antiquarian Booksellers, the Washington Area Booksellers Association, the Washington Rare Book Group, The Baltimore Bibliophiles, The Fine Press Book Association, and The Bibliographical Society of America.
