I'm a vancouver based writer/painter/Ceramicist, born and raised under big Prairie skies. As a child, I liked sports publicly and books privately, and since graduating from High School I've spent time as a soldier, a student, a bike courier, a treeplanter, an inner-city housing worker, and a university professor. I believe in the transformative power of art—visual, verbal, spiritual —and the groundedness that community provides.  I've got a book of poems coming out in 2017, and other manuscripts in progress. If you're looking for paintings or pots or want to collaborate or chat, please feel free to drop me a line.
