Reading regularly at the Easy Speak open mic in that city’s northeast, his work is forthcoming in Catamaran and Image Journal and appears in Timberline Review, Raven Chronicles Journal, Tiferet: A Journal of Spiritual Literature, Rock & Sling | a journal of witness, Lummox Journal, POESY Magazine, and the Bay Area Poets Coalition Anthology 23.
