Introduction I make art, and write poetry, and compose music, and make websites, and edit video, and put on pseudo-theatrical events, and perform ... and ... and ... my first book of poetry is DEFINITELY at the printer. i'll make some noise when the proof is in my hands. I'm a board member of Pittsburgh Filmmakers & Pittsburgh Center for the Arts, a film school & indie screening house - http://www.pghfilmmakers.org Some of my artwork is on my website, http://www.drawclose.com. For fun, I throw fire.
Interests Creative production, creative processes of all kinds. Poetry. Myth. Fairy tale. Epistemology! The problem of Evil! What people give themselves permission to percieve! Good coffee, green tea, cheap tequila, single malt scotch, oatmeal stout. Not at the same time.
