I have been a poet for the past 30 years or so. My background is in communications, working mostly for nondescript media outlets. I have lived in New York City since 1972, but now reside at Mount Vernon, NY. My passion for poetry started when I was very young, when my mother used to read me bedtime stories. She, however, wanted me to become an engineer, operating trains; but I chose other options, with being a poet as one of them.
