Yup...I'm old, and literate. Poetry is my passion, but copywriting and public relations pay the bills!

Background Information

I first started writing poetry half as an act of courage, half out of boredom in my seventh grade bio class. The boredom end is evident---but to understand the courage end... I was born and raised in Jersey City...was not very cool to able to READ in PS #6, at the time...but to write POETRY? THAT was cruising for a bruising. Since my family pic is listed in Webster's under "dysfunctional", writing became my shrink, my friend, my lover---and eventually my way of setting myself aside from the pack. Stephen Anthony Rossi encouraged me in high school, Antoinette Libro of Rowan University in College...meeting Lyn Lifshin was a major moment for me. And countless folks since I hit the web in 1998....but special thanks to Tony Spivey, the Poetdude, and Leon and Sondra Schlossberg of Iriswhite Publishing!

Birth Place
Jersey City, NJ USA

Ester Bovard Medallion for Creative Writing, 1983
Playwrights Workshop, Third Place
One Act, Locust and 14th...1982

Additional Information

I run a website called Galadrial's Respite, with a small group of volunteers, and an aim to bringing poets to their personal best in a low crit, nurturing environment. I am also a contributing editor for a fascinating new e-zine called SPIVEYLAND...and mod for a few other websites as well.
