Back to Meet the Staff


Timothy is a poet and writer as well as a reader. He likes Star Trek, listening to loud music, watching hockey, and spending as much time on his porch as possible. They keep a log of every book they read, and write a monthly newsletter called Stanza Break about poetry in translation and books outside of a publicity cycle. Pictured here with Frankie, one of his two dogs.
