New Publication

Infinity Ink Presents: An Internet

As the founding editor of Infinity's Kitchen, I collaborated with Ink Press Productions to produce a new publication called AN INTERNET. AN INTERNET is not digital content that it part of the conventional internet, but rather an amalgamation of contained digital content on a USB drive, together with a unique, modified book.

Ongoing Projects

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.
