I hail from the Land of Enchantment, formerly a desert rat born and raised in Santa Fe, NM. There I attended the University of New Mexico for five years as well as Albuquerque’s Technical Vocational Institute. During this time of my life my primary photos was Criminology. These days I call the Land of Ports aka Portland, OR “Home”; here I work as a materials technician for a local specialty hospital. In my downtime I play music, write fiction, poetry, shoot photography and paint on canvas not houses. I’ve been writing ever since 1996 both prose as well as short stories, currently I have two novels in the works; one is geared towards a fantasy audience and the other is a drug induced dysfunctional love story. My poems have appeared in Dream Fantasy International, Nomad’s Choir and are forthcoming from Brutarian and Black Gate.
Utilizing both digital as well as the tried and true 35mm, I’ve been an avid photographer for more than fifteen years, shooting over seas in addition to 35 of the 50 states. One of my favorite things in this life is traveling, picking up a fresh apple and going for an amble.
My record label is called A Monkey's Tea Party ©1994 while my manifesto would undoubtedly read, “I want it to sound fairly raw, organic... like it has been banged out of me! Opposed to being another flawed commodity”.
Remember a wink is better than a nod.
