Author's Bio

Received degrees from WSU in Detroit and USF in San Francisco. I write and perform poetry, flash fiction, nonfiction and short plays. Much of my work has been published. For ten years I hosted a popular spoken word series in SF, Celebration of the Word. Since 1996 my small press has published 20 poets. I teach English, writing and social studies to youth and adults. My cultural and film reviews appear at wattpad.com [worddoctor], starkinsider.com, and sidewalkstv.com. Regent Press published CAROUSEL, a collection of my essays, in 2014.
