A Nebraska born poet and prose writer, with a Colorado heart. I live in many ages, word formats, and creative expressions – all found between spoonful’s of peanut butter, bottles of whiskey, and the moon.
“So long as you write what you wish to write, that is all that matters, and whether it matters for ages or only for hours, nobody can say.” – Virginia Woolf
Fourteen years ago I first fell in love with poetry – the ability to create something so beautiful with only my words and imagination. Over the years my hero’s changed from Shel Silverstein to Allen Ginsberg, Kerouac to Shakespeare – but one thing has remained true, and that is the unconditional love I had for the written word. From blue ink smeared on paper to my first typewriter, I have dabbled with rhymes and free-writes, abstract and undefinable prose to expressive and insightful poetry. I have had my heart broken through words, only to fall again.
It has taken years of insecurities, developing patience and honing my procrastination to get to this point – but at twenty-five I am ready. I have words to share and friends to find.
