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.

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