I believe my writing possesses a sacred appeal that is universal. While many are driven, and I myself at times, by the meaning of all time, we glance past the meaning of our time. With my writing I humbly hope to touch this very sacred space of meaning—of how to make sense of it all, without losing hope for a grander vision./while cultivating a that grand vision (evolving potential)
With 100s of years behind us always culminating in a bubbling frothy place of unfoldment, we find ourselves in a critical peak we’re all theory has been dismembered, yet remains perfectly intact. We can’t shake the stuff, it is what we are made of; our cultural ties bound by. Like a woven something many rows deep now, no thread can be removed, only accepted as part of. The making of the thing continues.
I was born in Schenectady, New York. I don’t miss that city. I do miss the people. That doesn’t mean I liked them all. From the writer’s perspective, monologist’s perspective–they’re standing over my shoulder suggesting what to write. I don’t mind. They are, for me, a creative impulse pouring all over these pages. To write authentically about the human experience is my deepest passion.
I am an alum of the New School, class of 2009. I graduated with a degree in Liberal Arts, focusing my attention on writing, urban studies, social and political theory.
