I’m a poet and editor based in Toronto.
My collection of poetry and photographs, Let This be The End of Me, was published by Bad Books Press in 2018.
My third chapbook, Borderline Definitions, was published in December 2018. I also wrote the chapbooks WOOL WATER (words(on)pages press) and Portraits (In/Words Press).
My poetry is forthcoming in CAROUSEL. You can read some in Acta Victoriana, PRISM international, carte blanche, Arc, The Puritan, Hart House Review, Bad Nudes, BafterC, Queen Mob's Teahouse, and quite a bit more.
A long time ago my poetry was also long-listed for a CBC Poetry Prize and not so long ago it was an honourable mention for the Blodwyn Memorial Prize and John Newlove Poetry Award.
I was the cofounder of the Worst Case Ontario poetry tour and a member of the GO Big Then GO Home poetry tour. We performed in Montreal, Toronto, Kitchener, New York City, Hamilton, Pittsburgh, Boston, and more.
Other than poems, I take street photos. I also play drums in a band called Water Features.
