Haiku and Haiga

Since 2012 my haiku and haiga have been published in a variety of online journals, print journals and other print collections.

In October 2016 I participated in the annual Seabeck Haiku Getaway. I am one of the foundation members of the Inkstone Poetry Forum, where poets gather online to workshop haiku, tanka and related forms.
