I live in North Carolina and was born in the 1970’s. I lived much of my early life in Pennsylvania. I view poetry and writing as part of life and view the things I write as a work in progress much as I view life in general. It gives me great joy to make a small change on something I wrote 10 years ago that changes it just a little bit. I believe a life well lived includes Pho, Leaves of Grass, Hops, Coffee Beans and The Velvet Underground.
