About me

Introduction I am a poet and photographer who likes sports, jazz and art inspired by other art. Since 2001, I have attended and/or volunteered with a bereavement support group; and grief is a recurring theme in my poetry. My work has appeared in Thorny Locust, Rusty Truck ezine and Salon, a series of anthologies of poetry from Kansas City's longest running open mic. I combine poems and photographs into visual art. My work has been on display at The Writers Place, of which I am a member, PT's at the Crossroads, InterUrban ArtHouse, the Downtown Neon Gallery and the 2015 Mission (KS) Artwalk. It also was included in the juried show "Cultures Without Borders--2015".
