My proposal for sculpting a bust of Septimus Severus from cocaine was published in Brumes Blondes. I have signed a drawing with Post-it® Flags. I have used whiteboard. I have employed such surrealist methods as grattage and parsemage and my surrealist object "The Blue Fetish", is made of a PVC trap painted with gouache inside which is a chocolate-coated espresso bean and decaffeinated coffee bean. I have made two films, The Dead Man and The Erotic Life of the Eskimo, a watch in honour of An Jung-geun (published by Idealist Press International, Ltd.), a a computer desktop design and a bumper sticker.
I am the author of what is perhaps the first book entirely in the webdings font, The Peloponnesian Snows, and an exclusively large-print book published by Idealist Press International, Ltd., What Snow Disrupts. One of my drawings, "The Breakfast Club," were published in Surrealist Subversions, edited and introduced by Ron Sakolsky. I was a contributor to the Treatise of Pataphysical Anatomy, published by SpiderWeb Productions. I am the author of The Tailgating Spinster (published in 2003 by Fiji Island Mermaid Press). I designed the back cover for Psycho magazine.
I was an artist in residence at the Marquette Arts and Culture Center.
I have also been active in mail art, and have designed artistamps. Since 2002 I have served as the Chief Executive Officer of the International Union of Mail Artists. I have been named an Academical Knight of Verbano by the Ordine Accademia Internazionale <<Greci-Marino>>.
I received a BA from Curry College, where I took a class in Digital Imaging: Photoshop (AC 2738), two of the computer graphics I made in partial fulfillment of the requirements of which were The Scalpeles History White-clothed Like a Dove and with Three Owls.
In 1997 I curated the "Surrealism: Books, Objects, Posters and Pamphlets from Four Continents" exhibit at the East Library and Information Center in Colorado Springs. In 2003 I signed a petition protesting the pending sale of the contents of Andre Breton's studio at 42 rue Fontaine in Paris.
I have signed collective surrealist statements including "For Tyree Guyton" and "POETRY MATTERS!: On the Media Persecution of Amiri Baraka."
