I grew up in Montreal and studied at McGill.

I’ve since lived and worked in New Brunswick, Alberta, and Ontario, and have written two novels, Sons and Fathers and The Art of Being Lewis, and the award-winning poetry collection Catullus’s Soldiers. My third novel, The Great Goldbergs, is forthcoming.

My poems and essays have appeared in various Canadian journals and newspapers, including Literary Review of CanadaThe Antigonish ReviewThe Globe and Mail, and Telegraph-Journal.

In my fiction I explore the unpredictable journey we take to understand the truth about others and ourselves, and the lifelong struggle to become who we are. My poems are often about fatherhood, love and marriage, and death and art.

I live in Ottawa with my wife Kara and our lovely, rambunctious children.
