His first full-length collection, Past All Traps, was published in 2011 by Six Gallery Press and was shortlisted for the Haiku Foundation's 2011 Touchstone Distinguished Books Award. His poem "hiding" was selected as one of "100 Notable Haiku" of 2013 by Modern Haiku Press. A second full-length book, Yield to the Willow, is now available from Six Gallery Press. He lives in Lawrenceville. Many writers featured in Chapter & Verse are guests of Prosody, produced by Jan Beatty and Ellen Wadey. Prosody airs every Saturday morning on 90.5 FM.
