He was involved in the early days of the LA punk scene and later lived in Riverside, CA where he used his job in the copy shop making syllabus for classes at UC, Riverside to also make copies of poetry chapbooks and broadsides that he would distribute at punk shows, art galleries, poetry readings, record and book stores around Southern California. He also distributed a number of titles and authors through the classifieds of Flipside, Maximum Rock-n-Roll and [[Factsheet Five]].

All of these chapbooks have been long out of print. If you have a copy or have ever seen one, it represented the work of what some might view as marginal failures who found a common community for a moment in a world that just did not seem to care. It was a statement of voices in a canon of the unknown. Shots launched across the bow of an immanent juggernaut that dwarfed the sound of a few scattered screams from a soon gentrified and cleansed landscape. We hope it gave you pause to think and shelter for a seditious thought or two.
