His writing has appeared in Gravel; Passages North; The Emerson Review; War, Literature, & the Arts; and elsewhere.

"My work in special education settings in America puts me in class contact with Speech Therapists. What I've learned from my close colleagues in this field about language, word formation, and the (sometimes) fraught connection between ideation and vocalization inspired the word play and rhythm in this piece."
