His poems, essays, and translations have appeared or are forthcoming in a number of print publications, including The Old Farmer's Almanac. As a seasonal naturalist for the New Hampshire Audubon during the fall hawk migration, his writing appears on the blog (www.hawkcount.org) for Pack Monadnock Raptor Migration Observatory.
