My work has been published in a variety of print venues, mostly in the Southern California alternative newsweekly market. My inspirational essay, "In the Garden," was published in the book, Practitioners: Voices Within the Emerging Church (2005, Gospel Light). I've authored a number of blogs over the years, but currently I'm devoting that energy to my book: Punk and in Love: A Memoir About Men, Music and Hair in the 80s.
