In 2009, after a major shift in my life, I started to invest time and energy in my poetry.  I’ve taken a few poetry classes and shared my poetry at local open mics including The Bean, in Friday Harbor.  When I moved to Bellingham winter 2010 I was encouraged by the vibrant writer community. Crossing paths with many seasoned writers at various events I listened, took notes and practiced finding my voice.  In the process of doing that I fell in love with Bellingham, started to volunteer at a radio station and hosted Village Books Poetry Group.  I’ve been an active volunteer ever since.

Sometimes a person will ask me WHY do all this–and why do it for NO pay.  My only answer is it feels good to be a part of this town even in a little way.  I’m not locked up in the stifling existence of office to couch.  Reaching out and connecting with the other multi-interest people expands my world.  I’m just a poet who has a radio program and a day job or two.

This website is all about my latest projects, connections, and thoughts. Thank you for visiting.
