In 2005, he relocated from DC to Houston and has continued to self-publish numerous books of poetry, philosophy, and comedic abstractions and observations that, he feels, “follows consciousness where it must go.”

BGK is short for Basically Gentle and Kind. It’s origins are in Hinduism, in the days of pre-internet correspondence, when the author would jokingly sign his name as BG Karma, referencing the Indian painter BG Sharma. 

BGK’s latest works include Overflow (poems and prose, released in 2017), Good Nature, I’m In Your Area (Revenge of The Napkin Poems), and Terra.

Two new books, Vast + Spacious and Next Age, are currently in production and expected for release in 2019.
