I use social media sparingly, and only to post updates. I am happy to email you answers to questions and additional information not covered here.

Biographical information

You are welcome to copy elements of my bio. This is the most up to date version. Bios on social media may be outdated.

Awards and Publications

I keep a running list of awards and honors on the awards page.

Relevant news articles and publications can be found on the bibliography page.

Upcoming Gigs

I regularly lead the Poetry in Notion group at the JFK Library in Vallejo. We meet on the 3rd Monday of the month, unless it falls on a national holiday in which case it will be rescheduled. Other upcoming events can be found listed on the readings page.

Current Projects

In addition to writing my tenth poetry book, my Poet Laureate project is the development of a chapbook about Vallejo, California. Submission guidelines can be found on the Vallejo Chapbook page.
