Featured in magazines and anthologies, on websites and at poetry festivals worldwide. Numerous German-English verse translations, including the award-winning translation of Thomas Bernhard’s poems ‘On Earth and in Hell’.

In his work he attempts to expand the boundaries of poetry into as many different dimensions as possible. His work ranges from the lyrical to the experimental, from the quietness of the written word to presentation that includes other art forms such as music, dance or theatre, from experiments in multivocal and translingual writing and performance to exercises in poetic forms, from solo abstract sound poetry to collaborative group improvisations or arrangements involving live music.
