The Full Story

A Poet's Background In Drama & Theatre-Making

This page is dedicated to all the poetic lives I have lived in my 30 year career as a poet who has performed words as a means of survival, as well as expression. There are actually no words to express how exhilarating the feeling is to be entirely embodied in the poem in the moment. It takes work, but it also takes a commitment pulled from the depth of a sense of purpose of 'Yes. this is what I am supposed to be doing.'

I thank all the people who have been with me on this journey, those who have inspired me and let me be myself in the exploration of the word written, and written especially  to be performed.
