Poet

Author's Bio

I spent the first half of my life traveling and learning at the universities of Delaware and Michigan. I lived the second half of my life writing about the things I learned and the localities I experienced. I am a  poet and author and literary pioneer in online discussions and essays about post-structural theory and its literary style.  I began my research into post structural theory over a decade ago. I advocate for the arts and creatives. In late 2018, I established the Post structuralism Institute.
