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:

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

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


Tune in TONIGHT, 5/24/2011 as John Heck will be my guest! Read on!

Good day world! I hope everybody reading this is doing great so far today.

Just a quick heads up that my Internet Poetry & Spoken Word show, "Stand As 1", will be broadcasting TONIGHT @ 8pm EST on Blog Talk Radio (the link info is to your right under my pic) w/my very special guest & winner of my 2nd PS Poetry Contest, John Heck.

Please show your support for not only my guest, but the community as a whole. It is vital to the continued growth of all poets & authors.

Also, I will be reading the poetry & announcing the contest winner for my 3rd contest, "I. Roam." on tonight's show. The winner's list will be posted at some point tomorrow morning.

If you need any more info for tonight's show, please leave a comment or Soupmail me. :) See you all tonight!

    I've been listening to you and John chatting (it is 5:15 Tues, evening here in Ca)....just wanted to say how enjoyable to listen to you both!! I was pleased to hear John read your poem, Drake, turning the table on you, and surprise you Drake! And such a great choice he read. And to John...I was very surprised that he chose the lovely sonnet to read of his own...out of all the selections, I was surprised to hear that as his first choice! Well done! Great listening to you both!
