In 2003 he published Harvard Works Because We Do (Quantuck Lane Press), a book about the lives of service workers at Harvard University. He has been an artist-in-residence at the Bemis Center for Contemporary Arts and the Vermont Studio Center, and from 2006–07 he was guest artist at Risley Residential College for the Creative and Performing Arts at Cornell University.
