He is currently a retired writing instructor and freelance feature writer who became active in Seattle's Slam and other venues in 1993, winning Seattle's Grand Slam in 1995.
He has been published in various poetry anthologies and literary journals, including Red Ink, Yellow Medicine Review, Footsteps, and others. His first chapbook, Nail and other hardworking poems, was published in 1995 by Year of the Dragon Press. He has since published Children Remember Their Fathers, an anthology of mostly performance poets from across the country, followed by Junkyard Dogs, and Injunz.
His most recent collection is Poems for our Peoples, published by Foothills Press. His book reviews have appeared in Square Lake, New Pages, Cartier Street Review and Raven Chronicles, a Pacific Northwest journal for literature and the arts, which has also published several of his essays and articles. The current issue of Raven includes his poem, “The Real Uncle Sam,” and a review of Lenora Good’s historic novel about a tribal woman, Madam Dorion, Her Journey to the Oregon Country.
