I hugely appreciate the support my patrons provide, and all they have provided over the years, which has allowed me to focus my life as much as I have on creating music, poetry, other writings, visual artwork, and events. Thank you!

I am a writer, musician, and impresario living in Vancouver, Canada. This Patreon page follows my continuing adventures, including my family's recently-concluded travels around Europe, as well as the new adventure of figuring out where we will live and how we will make the most of the city. Think of this page as a handy spigot from which flows the products of my artistic practice, including their documentation. 

To tell you a bit about my work as a writer--in 2014, I won the 2014 Robert Kroetsch Award for Innovative Poetry for Hidden City (Invisible Publishing). I am also the author of (flood basement (Caitlin Press 2009). My work has appeared in Geist, Lemon Hound, Open Letter, Canadian Literature and PRISM International, among other places. I have a M.A. in English with a focus on creative writing and literary theory. I am currently at work on a novel about Sancho Panza’s donkey taking a journey through hell.

I am a self-taught guitarist, singer, improviser, and songwriter. My music is on the spectrum of Neil Young and Nirvana to freely improvised noise rock. I've toured Canada, sharing stages and/or collaborating with artists like Oxbow, Lightning Bolt, Geoff Berner, Wax Mannequin, Stanley Jason Zappa, Catherine Sikora, Matt Weston, Andrew Wedman, Harold Klunder and Catherine Carmichael, Dave Chokroun, Jonathon Wilcke, Darren Williams, Marcel Gagnon, and Raghu Lokanathan.

I also create events. I recently joined City Opera Vancouver as the General Manager. I have over twenty years of experience in the arts, from promoting my own punk and metal concerts as a teenager to becoming founder and board chair of Casse-Tête: A Festival of Experimental Music. Highlights include two and a half years as General Manager of the Prince George Symphony Orchestra; three and a half years as Marketing & Development Officer of Theatre North West; a summer as ArtsWells Festival Coordinator; owning and managing Dreamland School of the Arts; and founding and publishing Dreamland Magazine. I once dropped a piano off a building.

**UPDATED** New bonus for all patrons: tell me what date it is, and I will write you a haiku for your birthday, every year you subscribe! **  


***DOUBLE-UPDATED*** NEW FOR 2018! You'll get all my lower-tier benefits, plus a new, freshly recorded song every month! Also included will be deluxe digital artwork and liner notes! This album will not be released to anyone except Patreon supporters until at least 2019. These songs will be entirely written, recorded, and mixed using my laptop and Zoom H4n Handy Recorder. 


You believe in what I'm doing, and you want me to focus on it more. Thank you! You'll get all my paid posts, which will consist of poem and story drafts, documentary audio recordings, photo documentation of what I'm working on, journal entries, etc. This is your chance to see inside my creative process.

You trust my vision and want to see it extended in the world. Thank you! You'll get all the Supporter, Fan, and Superfan benefits, as well as access to any special event I produce. I'll write you the occasional personal letter and send it in the post. This is a fantastically deluxe option and I will honour anyone participating at this level as such. 
Goals
$86 of $500 per month
When I earn $500 per month, I will publish a schedule of my proposed creative activities for the following year, including chapbook releases, albums, etc. I will turn this into an oracular catalogue presentation.
