He has lectured and facilitated workshops about social issues and the arts at universities and colleges across Canada and in the USA since 1993. A multi-disciplinary performer since 1985, he has given thousands of shows of his own socially engaged theatre, music and poetry across North America, Europe and Hong Kong. He's also written seventeen books of poetry, short stories, novellas and a novel, a few dozen theatre musicals and solo cabarets, and released over 70 albums of music.
