A sub-trailer trash, high school drop out. I've worked menial jobs since I was 12 to help my family keep a roof over our heads and food on our table. I spent several years as a singer/songwriter in a heavy metal band in the NYC area until drugs, egos, sex and death threats made it not worth continuing.
My major fiction influences range from Kurt Vonnegut to Piers Anthony and from H. P. Lovecraft to Stephen King.
My poetry influences range from Edgar Allan Poe to Walt Whitman and from Rodger Waters to host of modern songwriters and poets.

I am currently exploring myself and improving my craft with the intention of becoming a novelist. Much of what I am working on now are raw expressions of my experiences, feelings and viewpoints.
