Mainly, I'm a poet by hobby.

I like to think my poetry tells a story. A snap shot of humanity, a picture with words. A lot of my work entwines nature metaphors with human elements. And crisp, contradictory, and whimsical imagery. And, due to this, you'll see frequent edits and overhauls as I try to reach the ever elusive 'perfection.'

I hold a Bachelor of Science in Psychology with a Professional Writing Minor. Since then, I began working in direct care. First with Pervasive Developmental Disabilities (i.e. Autism Spectrum), followed into Developmental Disabilities/Mental Health, and now in solely Mental Health (adults with Schizophrenia).

I also am an instructor for General Education classes including Psychology, Eng Composition, Sociology, Ethics, Anatomy & Physiology, etc, while perusing a counseling masters degree.

Due to this background, a lot of my pieces encompass psychological elements mixed within those images. I think of it as whimsical written art, at least when I get it right... Hope you enjoy the galleries!

Oh thank you for the compliment. I'm not sure how much I'd fully agree with that. Your work is rather good. A solid use of imagery without being overbearing/cliche. Also a rather nice flow. So, I'd go with "different voice" ;-)
