I'm a poet and teacher in Prince George, BC. My first two books of poetry, "understories" and "This Isn't the Apocalypse We Hoped For" were published by Caitlin Press. My most recent book is called "Undiscovered Country", through Mother Tongue Publishing (Fall, 2018). I also have two chapbooks: "Four Neat Holes" and "The Picket Fence Diaries." My poems have been published in The Malahat Review, GRAIN, CV2, Event, subTerrain, and in various anthologies, including Rocksalt, 4 Poets, & The Best Canadian Poems, 2011.

Art & Science on Climate Change

On January 6, 2017, I was invited to read at Art & Science for a Change, part of UNBC's NRESi Colloquium and held at Two River's Art Gallery. A packed room and insightful questions made for an excellent event.

Poems in Italian!

A few of my poems were translated into Italian by the poet Sandro Pecchiari and published in Traduzionetradizione, a journal based out of Milan. (Some pictures of the launch can be found here)  Sandro first discovered my work by reading my "We Love Bananas" poem in the Best Canadian Poetry in English (2011) Anthology, when he was visiting Winnipeg. He has translated quite a few of my poems, one of which you can hear him read here.
