Ibeh

I'm currently working as a Lot Associate at The Home Depot
I'm a Navy veteran 
Born in Lima, Ohio in October 28th, 1976
Graduated from Lake Clifton Campus(formerly Lake Clifton Eastern High School), Baltimore, Maryland in 1995
Graduated from Essex Community College in 2003 and Brightwood College(formerly TESST College of Technology) in 2005
Certifications: Electronics Technology, Telecommunications, Fiber-Optics/Copper Network Cabling 

I started writing poetry in November 2006. However, after losing my poetry notebook with about 135 poems in early 2009, I lost my passion for poetry completely. I was jobless for almost a year due to the recession of 2014, during that time period, I reignited my passion for poetry to stave off boredom. I discovered Poetrysoup and started posting my poems in 2016. The first poem I posted, "Wings of A Butterfly." My poems "Sing To Me, Nightingale, Unfulfilled Dream" and "A Waxing Crescent" appeared in the first issue of Poesis Online Journal
