Biography

I began writing poetry in the sixth grade . . . from there I branched off into songwriting. While the two are classifed as different forms of art, I seek to bridge the gap between them by using literary forms and techniques to bring a new perspective on the art of poetry and of songwriting. Most of my pieces are in free verse, in fact, I believe that the rhythm of words and the flow of thought are more important than following a set rhyme scheme. I believe it to be very impersonal to attempt to rhyme. My rhymes happen on accident . . . which I enjoy. My topics are usually rather personal and cryptic . . . later submissions will mostly likely support this statement. I rarely write political pieces unless it is something that affects me to the point of expression. I'll also apologize in advance for not reading everyone's poetry immediately . . . it's not a personal or egotistical thing . . . I just have to be in a certain mood (i.e. I don't feel like making art today . . . that rarely happens.) I do however promise to talk to anyone and reach out as much as possible.
Ironically enough, two of the three submissions, "No Mattress In The Park" and "Transontinental Desperation" are actually songs. If you would like the hear the musical renditions of these pieces, please visit www.myspace.com/redeyepilotproductions.

I appreciate your support and hope to make new artistic relationships and comraderies . . .

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.
