My poetry collection, Forest with Castanets (3/19), is published by Four Way Books. My book on poetry came out in 2005 with Barnes & Noble Books.

I’ve been an editor at PEN America’s Glossolalia, Guernica, and A Public Space. I’m working on a historical novel set in 1946 India and on a collection of essays. I have a curious, research-driven mind; I ghostwrite for design firms, edit for non-profits, and report on social policy in America. Public art projects include Movie Marquee poems with Nitehawk Cinema and the Lost Poem project for O Miami.

Born in Frankfurt to a Jewish-Jain couple, I grew up in Bombay and emigrated to New Jersey when I was seven.
