I’m an Oregon-based writer, poet, illustrator, collage artist, and creative rambler. I create poetry comics, visual essays, creative non-fiction pieces, and fiction.

Weirdo Poetry is about noticing the world around us and feeling a sense of wonder about all of it.

I’m the author of Pirate Haiku, Horror Haiku, and the author & illustrator of Quantum Joy Infinite Melancholy, Wild Divinity, and Weirdoku: An Experimental Haiku Zine Series.

I publish a daily(ish) poetry comic, almost always a haiku comic, Monday through Friday. Each Thursday, in addition to the comic, I also share a haiku writing prompt and some thoughts about the process of philosophy of writing haiku. On Fridays, in addition to the comic, I share links and pictures of things that I’m excited about or intrigued by.

Occasionally, I also record and share voice memos with everyone that give behind-the-scenes looks at what I’m thinking about, researching, and working on.  

Paid subscribers get an exclusive Tuesday edition with an essay, visual essay, video, or pictures of art I’ve made in my notebook. They also get free digital versions of my books and zines as I publish them.

Three of my favorite posts include Cursive Cigarettes, Our Worst Moments, and Eternity in Three Acts.

You can find a sense of wonder in your inbox each day!
