He has performed his poems in Europe, Latin America and North America and has been published in magazines, journals and anthologies all over the world. Some of his poems have been translated into French, Spanish, Italian and his short stories into German. Silvia Pio translated his poems into Italian and they have been published in the online Magazine Margutte.
