WELCOME to this site. It contains samples of poems and feature articles I've written over nearly all my adult life, mostly early in the morning or late at night between day jobs. It also contains videos of readings and performance events; some reviews; a list of awards; and a page where you can order my books if you're inclined.
Almost everything on this site can be reached by clicking on titles or links (indicated by holding a cursor over them). The "contact me" link below also may be used to request access to a password-protected website -- Papers, Please: A Twentieth Century Odyssey -- which with spinoffs including the 'concert documentary' Two Pianos: Playing for Life has occupied much of the rest of my recent free time and represents the rich tapestry of family history reflected in some of these poems and articles.
Feel free to poke around. Thoughts or comments are welcome. I hope you enjoy what you find.
