Poetry has been an active part of my life since my teen years in the late 1960s. I write poetry because I love poetry, and for no other reason. Well, that's not exactly true. At times, I write poetry because I feel like I will explode if I don't. I am the author of 5 self-published collections of my poetry, including a book combining my poetry and photography. I enjoy poetry readings and giving talks about poetry.
Because of my passion for writing, I teach an undergraduate college essay writing course. I make a living as an economic development and healthcare consultant. Also, I work as a Reiki Master therapist with cancer patients at Cleveland Clinic (Cleveland, Ohio). My educational background includes graduate degrees and training in Consciousness Studies, Organizational Behavior, and Economic Development. I live in the Greater Cleveland area, and you can contact me by email at firstname.lastname@example.org
