I paint the moment with words
I first began my poetic journey formally in 2011 by taking my words online with a poetry blog, The World Poetized, to share a small bit of my perspective. This simple act of free expression opened within my experience the full body of creative efforts that are my current body of work. I continue to be inspired each day and I have found that micropoetry, short form, customized for social media, defined by image has been my ideal medium.

The publication of Snapshots was my opening step into the self-publishing world and an experience I look forward to keeping with me as I work on my next self-publication of #PoeArt titled: ViewFinder
Not limited to #PoeArt I also enjoy writing in traditional form as well as creating new forms of poetry. Form poetry allows a chance for my mental analysis to participate in the creative expression process. In creating forms and longer poetic expressions I found recording readings of my work to be an channel of poetic exchange I enjoy and seek to broaden through The World Poetized. One of my readings, Journey in Inches was recently featured in a collection by Blue Sky Highway™ (BSH), in "A Kaleidoscope of Music, Sound, and Spoken Word."
Other of my favorite readings include:
Inspiring #Art4Causes we are taking the concept of blending forms even further by donating a portion of the earnings made from the project sales in multi-media presentation of both books, slideshows and a live exhibit to charities that our supporters help up select!
