Background Information

I have to say it's strange to consider myself a writer.  I have always fought with what that actually means - I find many other occupations are more palpable in their definitions.

Writing to me, as many, is catharsis.  I don't write for anyone else but myself.  I have an obsession with being genuine, and honest - and through writing I can both communicate honestly and also work out subconscious conflicts within myself.

I don't keep a target audience in mind when I write, because that would befoul the entire process.  If I had to write for someone else, I would be required to continually judge each phrase, sentence and paragraph as it comes.  I work much better after swallowing a couple of glasses of wine, a tear in my eye and a burning in my belly.

Desperate admonitions are the stuff of inspiration, true, unfiltered gut-wrenching honesty is what makes people feel.  This is my goal, to let out that cosmic consciousness and the rest follows.  I think these things resonate with genuine artistry, not the disposable, materialistic mainstream media that is unfortunately so prevalent these days, particularly in the United States.

My influences are: Nabokov, Kafka and many little books from no-names I've picked up in thrift stores over the years.

My goal: To be one of those no-named writers, who brings some inspiration to someone years and years from now, even after I've passed.
