Western Lights is a collection of essays from the viewpoint of a Western Buddhist teacher.

Clouds Tell Us is a collection of poetry exploring the intersection of nature and our humanity.

I’ve been practicing Buddhism seriously for about fifteen years and teaching since 2009.  I’ve received teachings from the Pure Land, Chan (Zen), and Vajryana traditions as well as Buddhist Qigong.

I’ve rekindled my interest in art and paired it with my knack for bringing people together.

I’ve created a series of collaborative art projects. You should join in.

I spend a lot of my day working in technology. Read more about my work life on Linkedin
