BIOGRAPHY
I am a poet living and writing in New York City. My first book was published in Sept. 2002 by Texas Review Press and is called Asleep in the Lightning Fields, available from Amazon.com. I have a second book called The Circle Line which will be published in 2006 by Red Hen Press out of Los Angeles. Before moving to New York City, I lived in Prague for three years and shot many many black & white photographs.
