I am a poet living in one of the country’s great literary cities, Portland, Oregon. On this home page, I will feature a new poem every Monday and a list of upcoming events where I or some of the local poets I admire will be reading, as well as news about my own work. Links to recent poems published in online literary journals, and links to print publications that have accepted my work, can be found on the “Publications” page. As a student of the traditional Japanese flute, the shakuhachi, I have recorded poems accompanied by the flute, traditional music, and the occasional original composition, which you can find on the “Audio” page. Please contact me at email@example.com if you want further information about my poems, want to invite me to read, or want to inquire about my plays and fiction.
