Mississippi Review nominated “Pinkie” for the Pushcart Prize.

Four of my latest collages appear in Quarterly West. I’ve been a big fan of the magazine for years, so this is a real thrill. I’ve attached one image below, and you can find the rest over on their website.

How to scrape with Ruby and Nokogiri and map the data

publication, software development, Wichita

Free Code Camp published my article “How to scrape with Ruby and Nokogiri and map the data.”



This piece comes out of a project I recently built to map bridge data from across Wichita, Kansas. To get the bridge info, I created a Ruby script that used Nokogiri to compile information before converting it to JSON . With that in hand, I was able to use JavaScript and the Google Maps API to plot each bridge with info-rich popups.

Read the article and see the code on GitHub.

Three of my collages appear in the newly released Miracle Monocle, Issue 10 from the University of Louisville. It’s exciting to have my visual work appear alongside such great poetry, prose, and hybrid writing. My three pieces appear in the visual arts section “The Writerly Appeal of Collage,” with an introduction by Thomas Calder.
