He has a B.A. in poetry from Columbia College Chicago, and has work published or forthcoming in Habitat Lit Magazine, Pine Hills Review, Sink Hollow Literary Journal, Hooligan Magazine, No Assholes Lit Magazine, Columbia Poetry Review, Callosum Magazine, and EOAGH.

The Good House & The Bad House is a long-poem and essay using graphics and text to explore place-memory, factual metaphor, the after-effects of multi-generational conflicts, and transness. These themes are continuously in need of the house as their setting, bringing forgiveness to the merging of multiple selves which are stationed simultaneously in memory and the present.
