About me

Occupation Being as fully human as possible
Location Paris, France
Introduction I founded and run SpokenWord because it's fun. And sometimes transcendent. Because I love words and spoken poetry. Paris is a beautiful backwater where life is slower than New York or London, it gives breathing space, distance from the anglo metropoles that supports writing. & the English-speaking community here is just the right size to come together and do something, to provide a home/platform for, to nurture and be nourished by, our/your poetry, stories and songs. A space in which to create something fun, and sometimes sublime.
Interests Rollerblading round Paris on Friday nights very fast.
Favorite Movies Orlando, Waking Life, The Third Man
Favorite Music God Save The Queen (Sex Pistols version)
Favorite Books "and our faces, my heart, brief as photos" & "G" both by John Berger

You have to dig a hole to China. Where do you start?

China, obviously.
