I write anything but poetry. And even then, my aim is to tension prose to hum without the need for stanzas or verse or a mic stand in a basement somewhere. I prefer longer work--novels, feature-length films--but I mainly write in the short-story to novella length. I've been trying my hand at games, tabletop scenarios, audio drama, even a few experimental forms. If it's a medium, I'll try it.
I don't have a preferred genre. Bending genres appeals more than filling out a niche. Most of my work would fall into the following genres, styles, or topics: cyberpunk, trans-humanist sci-fi, horror, noir, punk, historical fiction, low fantasy, contemporary, splatterpunk, xeno-fiction, military fiction (of all ages and calibres). I tinker, fuse, and pick apart the above whenever possible.
Regular inspiration includes anything on my feeds, Toronto, transit systems, post-apocalyptic art, the book in my bag, odd turns of phrase, a TV show late at night. Specific inspiration-of-choice includes work from Elizabeth Bear, Dan Abnett, S. M Stirling, Chuck Wendig, Neal Stephenson, Karen Lord, Chuck Palahniuk, Tony Burgess, the Gaslight Anthem, The Menzingers, Long Distance Calling, Agrifex. Plenty of others exist.
