Background Information

I am a multiArtist. I enjoy experimenting with various art forms and to merge different platforms. I have used the Internet as a form of expression since 1995. My various web sites have been awarded major awards and my online contribution has been considered pioneering on a global scale. Thus the Internet is one of my major influences. The people I have met in Cyberspace and worked with through various projects have created a new dimension to my work. I begun to write at an early age and when I was 14 I chose to become a poet. Some of my literary influences are Icelandic authors I am sure you will never have heard of. I guess Steinn Steinarr plays the largest role in guiding me towards poetry, he was one of our greatest poets. The Beat generation, Blake, Bulgakov, Hesse and Snorri Sturluson. And than there are people I am deeply thankful towards, such as: Dalai Lama for his ability to make me smile every time I see him, D. H. Melhem for the deep and sharp beauty in her work, Larry Jaffe for being an action poet, Maurizio Di Bona for his ability to draw another perspective and my children for keeping me grounded.
