A descendant of women from three Indigenous nations, French and Scottish voyageurs and original Mayflower immigrants, he represents a unique voice in the field of Indigenous writing. An emerging Queer / Two-Spirited poet, he has often been described as the spiritual love child of Truman Capote and Thompson Highway. His first collection of poetry, Ceremonies for the Dead, was published by Kegedonce Press in 2013. In 2015, he was the recipient of the inaugural Speaker’s Award for a Young Author from the Speaker of the House for the Ontario Legislative. His poetry can also be found in Arc Magazine, Muskrat Magazine, Prairie Fire, Matrix Magazine and scrawled within bathroom stalls at truck stops across Ontario.
