I am a Silent Illumination Meditation (mo-chao) practitioner and teacher.

I write for Patheos, I’m a former member of the board of directors for The Tattooed Buddha.

I’ve taught at One Mind Zen Hermitage, The Open Heart Project, and the Rime Center Buddhist Community.

In my day job I’m  a union labor activist.

I specialize in bringing meditation practice and Buddhism to people in a practical way that applies to real life. I teach in groups and retreats.
