I am a queer poet with a mental illness and my poetry has been largely reconciling my life and my feelings. It is an exploration of the brightest dreams and darkest nightmares madness can cause both in real-life history and present tense delusion.
I began my University studies at Western Oregon University and transferred on an honors scholarship to Pacific University in Forest Grove, Oregon. I earned my BA in Political Science.
I am a poet from Oregon who has lived here my entire life except for 3 years in the 00s when I lived in Metro Atlanta.
