Reading Series

The Infinity's Kitchen Late Show

The Infinity's Kitchen Late Show is a literary reading series that includes special guests, banter with the performers about their work and their lives, and more. It’s all in a format that resembles a late night talk show. We sometimes throw some fun gags in the mix. It occurs quarterly in Baltimore, Maryland.

Literary Journal

Infinity's Kitchen is literary journal of conceptual and formally experimental writing. I am the founding editor of the publication, and the host of its quarterly reading series. Here's a video introduction.

Spoken Word

For a writer, editing sound is very much like editing printed words. You can add, subtract, rearrange the sounds in very much the same way that you can on the page. With sound there are other ways to edit, though. You can revise the speed, pitch, volume, echo and decay of the words. It was this aspect that prompted the title "Strange Punctuation”.

Selected Performances

An open mic reading on my sixteenth birthday was the start of a life-long passion for readings, slam poetry, and literary performance art. Here are some recent performances.
