My Life in Words

I have been writing poetry since I was nine years old, and I have been fortunate enough to have multiple poems published.

I write poems from my own perspective, from the perspective of fictional characters, and everything in between. Some of my poems rhyme, some are free verse, but they are all original. I have a poetry "blog" as well as a poetry page on Instagram where I publish micropoetry.


Walt Whitman and Emily Dickinson are two of my favorite poets, but I also love the "mad ones" like Jack Kerouac.


I live and breathe in the pauses between the start and the stop.
