I grew up in Queens, New York. When I was seven years-old, I discovered my first creative outlet: writing. Since many of my stories were influenced by movie imagery, it was inevitable I would go to school for filmmaking.
The book that inspired me to write poetry seriously was Gabriel Garcia Marquez's densely lush The Autumn of the Patriarch. This work was an epiphany for me.
Some of my favorite fiction and poetry authors are Gabriel Garcia Marquez, H.P. Lovecraft, Ian McEwan, Arthur Rimbaud, Michael McClure, and Charles Bukowski.
In addition to my poetry collections, Venison and Dervish, I have written and directed films. My two shorts, Beer and Art and Cave People, were well-received and played online and at festivals.
I have also penned a feature script - a dark comedy titled Proxy.
