Poet Introduction

I write with as much experience as a young enlisted can. Poems about being underway or just being a man in his twenties. Huge fan of extended metaphor and imagery. Still growing and establishing my voice.

Favorite Poets/Writers

Phil Kaye, Neil Hilborn, Horihiko Araki, Ben Folds, Charles Brukowski, Kahil Gibran, ong many others

About Me

Read Full
I write as a hobby and I am looking to improve. I am still a fairly new writer I've only dabbled in it before the last year and a half. I have no publications but hope to someday. I write honestly about my life and experiences. From being out to sea to Friday night benders at some bar, smoking, lonliness, (hopefully) funny insights, and midnight epiphanies.

Grew up in New Mexico and joined the Navy at 17 in order to leave New Mexico. The separation from home and other things I have experienced since have shaped me. I am a lover of creative wordplay and diverse subject matter.

Please send me a message if you ever want to know the back story to anything I've posted. Have a good day you wonderful people.
