About Me
Born and raised in Brooklyn, NY, I now live in Kingston, NY. I write to live and live to write. When I can squeeze it in, I also do other things, such as play the bass guitar and read. Nearly two years ago, I was diagnosed with bipolar I (with psychotic features, which basically means that I have a tendency to delusions and hallucinations) and finally most of my previous life makes a hell of a lot more sense. At this point in my life, I need writing as much as I need my medication. Maybe more.
