Family, friends, reading, writing, learning and challenging others as well as myself to become a more proficient story-teller.
I started writing in the 90's and was introduced to poetry forums in October, 2002. I have been interacting with other writers ever since. I have some works in publication and my first chapbook, Chimerical Cleo, was inspired from winning a poetry competition in 2003.
By day, I am a project manager supporting payment & financing management initiatives at a major electronics corporation.
