About

Poetry is all around us—life’s artistic treatise is only as far as one’s imagination.

— Nena Black

The writings and images here are an exploration of life—human life and that of the awe-inspiring natural world around us. Life in its complexity, dichotomy, eclecticism, idiosyncrasy, sensuality, nostalgia… Through the lens, with the pen, and from the vantage of the heart, mind, and soul, I am a passionate observer of life. I let the poetry emerge in all that I see and do, capturing and expressing it as I can through writing and photography. Poetry is all around us. Life is a collage of passion, pain, and perseverance. Even moments of chaos can turn quickly to artistic inspiration. The collage is perpetually in motion. Life’s artistic treatise is only as far as one’s imagination.

I am also a consummate storyteller. The tradition of storytelling spans the length of human existence. Our stories are integral to our health, our history, our humanity. Even more integral is thought itself (e.g., perception, consciousness, awareness) and the capacity for intellectual expansion, which I explore via existentialism, Buddhism, nature, cultural commentary, the arts, and the philosophy of human potential.
