Isaac is a recent graduate of Kansas State University, and more recently Ohio State University where he received an MFA in creative non-fiction.

Isaac’s major preoccupation is writing. He is currently the Writer-in-residence at Lenoir-Rhyne University. Isaac’s work has appeared in Image, Fourth River, The Writer’s Chronicle, Portland, Ohioana Quarterly, The Voice Project, and elsewhere. He co-authored Economy of Love (The House Studio, 2010).
