Poetry

Writing voraciously from the time I could make a mark on paper (or anywhere else), my first published poem appeared in an anthology when I was 10 years old.

Now, I push the boundaries of what the form will allow and where it can go. I'm passionate about the term "experimental poetry" and all of its possibilities.

While using various artistic mediums to introduce my work to a larger audience, you're just as likely to find my poetry in a video or on canvas as you are to find it in a book or magazine.
