As my work appears in print and online, I will add audio performances of them for streaming here.  A podcast is also in the works, tbd...


"In Search of Liberty Hyde Bailey," by John Stempien. This video series chronicles the personal journey of my friend, colleague, and Director Emeritus of the Liberty Hyde Bailey Museum, John Stempien, as he searches with me for ways to come to a fuller and true understanding of Bailey's complex life and work.

Reading from Havening. This includes a really sweet intro from my good friend Geetha S. Iyer, and about a ten-minute reading from my in-process creative nonfiction book project, Havening, at the Iowa State University MFA Thesis Festival 2013.

"Barack Obama," by Xavier Cavazos. My buddy and excellent poet Xavier Cavazos delivers a stunning performance of his poem on an early morning in Iowa State University's Jack Trice Stadium during our final year in the MFA program. Fellow MFAer Andrew Payton did the filming and video editing, and I did sound and made a little cameo at the end.  Xav brought the goods.
