About Drake Eszes
(Show Details...)
Bloggers PhotoSo you're taking the time to get to know about me? Excellent! Hope you like what you see. =)

I've been a DJ for 17 yrs and a Poet for about 8 yrs. I write in ALL forms I can think of. I never settle for just one way of expression. My 3rd eye is very kind to me. It has seen more than it should, at times. Thankfully, though, my glass is always half-full.  ;)

I'm also the Founder of a very small, Indie Game studio in Northern California called Nascent Games. I direct, as well as write screenplay & create audio for my games. You can see more at: http://www.nascentgames.com

Also, I run a LIVE Poetry & Spoken Word internet radio show on BlogTalkRadio called "Stand As 1". The show is about putting the "Unity" in the Poetry "Community". All poets are highly encouraged to call and be heard.

"Stand As 1" is each & every Sunday morning from 8-10am PST on http://www.blogtalkradio.com/drakejeszes

So have I scared you off yet? No? Good. =)

-Drake

Hey all!

Just a quick blurb about my 1st contest called "Above the Clouds". My 1st contest in 2 yrs! WOO HOO!

The winner will not only have Glory, but I will read their poem on my "Stand As 1" show and invite them to be a future guest. :)

Have a look at the details in the "Member Contest" area and, if you have any questions, shoot me a comment on here or Soupmail me.

Cheers!  :)
