I was born and raised in San Francisco, CA. I currently reside in Washington D.C. On my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my partner, Andrew and my dog, Nash Rocky-Latjke. I'm a spiritual person who enjoys hiking, meditating, cooking, weightlifting, healthy-eating, and yoga. I'm always adventurous in a sense of discovering new hobbies & interests.
I look back at all the poems I have written and appreciate the evolution of my writing style and techniques. Prior to winter 2006, I had little interest in poetry until a few, interesting events weaved together. These few incidents guided to me poetry as an outlet to my many burstful emotions longing for a steam of release. As a result, I ended up writing about over half of the material in less than a week's time which debuted in my first poetry compilation, Misty Dawn Road.
These days I continue to write poems. And I've dared myself to venture my way into creating short stories.

This compilation wittily touches on relatable themes of nostalgia, boredom, deception, strength, and love. Some poems are beautiful in their straightforward delivery while other pieces push you to read between the lines of playful metaphors to figure out the underlying message. In this second release, the author continues to take readers on a passionate journey of reflection, self-discovery, and the search for a power within to bravely move forward and face the future with both courage and faith. Transient Dreams is characteristic of this journey. He begins to search for who he is and what he stands for. He questions his dreams and passion with an uncertain future looming ahead. That is something I can relate to at the junction of this new chapter in my life. Instant sonic is a great ode to reminiscing about the innocence of childhood or simple times of the past. It reminds me to live well in the present so I can have great memories to keep as I grow older. When Everything Finally Clears is a beautiful love poem. When the drama finally subsides, we all hope to rekindle the love we once felt.
