I live and write in Toronto.

My collection of poetry and photographs, Let This be The End of Me, was published by Bad Books (formerly Hybrid Heaven Press) in spring 2018.

I am the author of the chapbooks WOOL WATER (words(on)pages press) and Portraits (In/Words Press). 

My poetry is published in digital and print journals in Canada, U.S. and U.K. Poems are forthcoming in CAROUSEL, and have appeared in PRISM international, carte blanche, Arc, The Puritan, Hart House Review, BAD NUDES, BafterC, Queen Mob's Teahouse, and more. 

My poetry was also long-listed for a CBC Poetry Prize and was an honourable mention for the Blodwyn Memorial Prize. 

I was the cofounder of the Worst Case Ontario poetry tour and a member of the GO Big Then GO Home poetry tour, with performances in Montreal, Toronto, Kitchener, New York City, Hamilton, Pittsburgh, Boston, and more. 

I take a lot of street photos, and some were in Standford Cheung's chapbook Comfort of Malice (Inspiritus Press).
