My influences are not traditional in the sense that my environment contributes more to my poetry than any certain individual or writing style. A photographer can capture an entire war in a single photo, an artists painting can tell a story without saying a single word. I want to paint a picture of my life experiences through my writing.
I live a pretty interesting life that gives me the opportunity to experience things that most people only see in movies. I currently investigate shootings in Irvington and Newark, NewJersey for a State Police Task Force named Operation: Ceasefire. We are a pilot program for large cities throughout the country and have experienced great success. We on average are more than triple the natonal average on solved shooting cases.
Some of my passions include motorcycles, airbrushing, fishing, tattoos and of course some very fancy tea parties with my daughter and her dolls. I come from a very closeknit Italian family that look like a bunch of stunt doubles for the Sopranos lol. I'm a 250 pound 33 year old tattooed cop that many people may find slightly intimidating when I'm in "work mode", but if I have any issue with anything at all the first words out of my 5 foot tall 90 pound mother is "Do you want me to call and have a talk with them?" No Mommy I think I got the having talks with peope part down thanks.
