I've written and self-published two books of poetry. My most recent work is The History of Dying Stars, a book which includes my most recent poetry and 16 different artworks by 12 different artists. During my studies at UC Berkeley's School of Law I wrote The Flower Queen, a book featuring my poetry and my mother's artwork.

You can browse selected poems from each book and my other writings below. You can also follow me on Facebook
