Biography

An ordinary man living in extraordinary times. Moved by human rights issues I separately met and marched with Martin Luther King, Robert Kennedy and Cesar Chavez at a very young age. Encouraged by new found friendships I jammed with Janis Joplin and Jimi Hendrix at 15 and ranted poetry with Lawrence Ferlinghetti, Alan Ginsberg, and Richard Brautigan in the years after that.
And for 3 decades I settled into personal counseling, high risk prisoner rehabilitation, drug and alcohol rehabilitation, and
inner city school tutoring with my good friend, Isaac Hayes.
Recently I have been encouraged back into a favorite haunt, poetry.
I am very proud of my good friends, the poets of passion and humanity
who give light back to our sometimes dark, forbidding world.

In science one tries to tell people, in such a way as to be understood by everyone, something that no one ever knew before. But in poetry, it's the exact opposite.

Franz Kafka (1883-1924) Czech writer.
