Biography

I am a performance poet and slam master, currently residing in Murray, UT. I have performed poetry all over Utah, Colorado, Idaho, Washington and Oregon, where I was part of the Irradiated Poets.

In SLC, UT, I am part of Salt City Indie Arts, an organization that promotes poetry and all the arts through a series of open-mics around the city in different venues, and via outreach to schools. I've been part of the poetry scene here for over 12 years as a performance poet, slam master and event organizer. Most recently, I emceed and performed at First Night in downtown SLC where we put together the Art Tent event from 6PM to 11:30 PM, alternating poetry and music all night long against a backdrop of visual arts.

I lived on a floating home on the Columbia River in Portland, OR, for two years and had a blast! Went to the ocean almost every weekend. Sure do miss it. I'll be moving back up there ASAP after I graduate from the University of Utah next May with my major in Mass Comm/PR. I just completed my minor in Creative Writing two weeks ago.

Well, must go now... As the Italians say: "The mother of idiots is always pregnant..." Whatever that means...

Thanks, and backatcha, me love...

When power leads man towards arrogance, poetry reminds him of his limitations. When power narrows the area of man's concern, poetry reminds him of the richness and diversity of existence. When power corrupts, poetry cleanses.

John F. Kennedy (1917-1963) Thirty-fifth President of the USA
