He earned his MFA from Goddard College. He is a faculty member at Mission College in Santa Clara, California.

“Like musicians trading solos, McGee and Lofton’s voices vibrate with energy, building, jamming, pulsing across urban landscapes, imploring the spirit to stand up, wake up, and feel the trembling complexities of self and culture. This moving collection echoes Whitman and Hughes infused with the power and relevance of Zach De La Roche, poems standing boldly on the street corners of contemporary America.”

– Theodore Shank, author of Follow the Flickering Down
