I am professor emeritus at Adrian (Michigan) College and divide my time in retirement between Toledo, OH and Savannah, GA. I am a volunteer at Clínica Buen Samaritano in Savannah where I teach ESL and serve as an interpreter for the nurse practitioners.
I addition, I am a poet and translator. I have published book-length translations of Mexican poets Elías Nandino, Roxana Elvridge-Thomas, Sergio Téllez-Pon, Rossy Lima and Jair Cortés, as well as Carmen Reverón from Venezuela. I am the translation editor for The Ofi Press, CDMX. I believe that words transcend walls, that books transcend borders.
