I have strong feelings about Canadian English, etymological rigour, and the serial comma.
My new chapbook of poems, Catastrophe & Tense, is available now.
Fourteen poems about love, lust, and loss—not necessarily in that order—Catastrophe & Tense is my first chapbook since 2007, available for purchase now.
In 2009, the first play I wrote with Mike Young—featuring the heroic Captain Hook and swashbuckling Peter Pan battling the evil Dr. Crocodile’s army of undead—sold out four shows at the 28th Edmonton International Fringe Festival.
My first self-published collection of poetry sold enough copies to break even; submitted for extra credit, it earned me the only A+ grade of my post-secondary career. As far as I’m concerned, an unqualified success.
Desire lines are the foot-worn paths pedestrians create across spaces with no man-made walkways. Though they represent the most direct route from origin to destination, they are never perfectly straight.
In 2007, I contributed to, designed, and served as consulting editor for Twig, a collection of student poetry.
More immediate and less polished than Desire Lines, the chapbook I released in the fall of ’07 was a small handful of poems about despair, drugs, and desperation. The edition was very limited.
Three of my poems appeared in an exhibit of student work at the 2007 Works Art and Design Festival.
I’ve been a professional writer for over a decade, with training and experience in sundry acts of wordsmithery, including technical, business, and promotional writing, proofreading and copyediting, in print and on the web. If you’ve got an exciting project with words you don’t want to smith yourself, I’d love to hear about it.
I contributed six photos and a poem to a collaborative exhibit at the 2008 Works Art and Design Festival: nine other poets, one other photographer, and I explored notions of interstices—liminal spaces, charged emotional gaps—through word and image.
The Space Project was called “the most uplifting exhibit I saw affiliated with The Works this year.… just on the fringe and the only exhibit that made any sense.”
My brother Jesse released his first full-length album for free download in September 2010, with cover and website design by yours truly.
I’ve been responsible for designing and maintaining the official website of Toronto artist Vivek Shraya since 2003, most recently overhauling it in the fall of 2010 for the release of his first short film, Seeking Single White Male.
A tight budget and tighter schedule had me preparing posters, programmes, and press kits for Apocalypse Arts’ summer 2009 action-comedy-horror.
In addition to serving as contributor to and editor of the 2007 student poetry collection Twig, I also designed the cover and interior layout.
In 2005, I designed the packaging for Vivek Shraya’s third album.
