About me

Leave a comment


I did my undergraduate at Queen’s University (1998), my master’s at the University of Victoria (2000), and my doctorate at York University (2005). I did a short SSHRC post-doctoral fellowship at Queen’s University, before being hired at Brock University in 2006.

My active research fields are Canadian literature, avant-garde literature, editorial theory, and adaptation theory.


House Press in Calgary, Alberta published my first poem in 1999 (an anagrammatic translation of bpNichol), and my first chapbook of poetry in 2001. Since then, my poems have appeared in hundreds of journals and anthologies in many different countries. I have four books out, and a fifth on the way.
