A message from the writer

KIE_4736 Social Media Res.jpg

The temptation to over-describe yourself is unavoidable; like the temptation to over-write, overthink, over-produce in this age where we're all fighting for a slice of attention in this busy world. 

To keep things short: I am a writer and this is my space where I leave my online clutter for public viewing. I love writing knife-sharp poetry, messy essays about art and the world & stacking up my feelings inside ink-thick journal pages.
