My poetry collection Forest with Castanets is published by Four Way Books. My book on poetry was commissioned by Barnes & Noble Books.

I’ve been an editor at PEN America’s Glossolalia, Guernica, and A Public Space. In progress is a historical novel set in 1946 Bombay and an essay collection. Public art projects include Movie Marquee poems with Nitehawk Cinema and the Lost Poem project for O Miami. I’m managing editor at Library Journal and School Library Journal.

I was born in Frankfurt to Jewish and Jain parents, and we left for Bombay soon after. We emigrated to New Jersey when I was seven.
