The Garden in the Machine was published by Hidden Brook Press (March 2007). His poetry has also been published in several anthologies and journals. While his profession requires long hours of reclusive keyboard pounding, he also organizes and hosts his own poetry reading series in Toronto: Hot-Sauced Words, now entering its fourth year. He serves as vice-president of the Writers’ Circle of Durham Region where he enjoys developing ways to help writers gain confidence in their writing and presentation, but is often found attending symposiums and workshops due to his belief that lifelong learning is an essential spark for productive creativity. A regular contributor to the Toronto poetry scene, he delivers his emotionally clever poetry with an intriguing, unforgettable punch.
