About Me
Returned to writing here in 2006. Reception not what I expected. No plans going forward but status quo. If I can turn heads as a nobody, without fake, flowery reviewers meaning to turn my head, I know I'm doing something. Professional (3 time state-awarded) journalist: radio news director, freelance stringer for major Milwaukee paper, wrote/voiced stories for National Public Radio and CBS Radio, TV news assignment editor in Green Bay, college newspaper & literary editor. It all don't mean sh*t.
Type of Writer
Wanna-be novelist. Keep returning to poetry, an undisciplined writer.
Writing Style
You tell me. Evolving, but don't see where this maturation process is headed.
Staying healthy, maintaining body. Get to brag, if you knew circumstances that have restrained my upkeep.
True love, peace & bliss. If I knew where they exist, would love to commune there.

Group Memberships
Former Rising Star, now a haze of gas. Probably a circumpolar orb hovering about WDC at my best. Not "highly" recruited. Might be the locked arm I keep in front of me with hand extended. Don't let that fool you.

Favorite Genres
I confess: RomCom, just this side of The Notebook...unless I've been drinking.
Favorite Poets
Emily Dickinson, ee cummings, William Carlos Williams, to begin with. I could read modern poets, but no one coalesces with my modern day world at the moment.
Favorite Music
Eclectic. I'll pass on most rap, though can vibe with it. Check my blog entries for links to music videos by music acts that have caught my attention.
Favorite Movies
Anything where the malevolent, misunderstood anti-hero (like me) is redeemed and walks off to leave all behind, but has one person who understood his darkness all along, joins him to quest his vision, unify as kindred souls. Not Batman/Robin.
Favorite Shows
Community (binged 12x) Private Eyes (5 seasons of will they until final, one kiss) Monk The Office (Michael/Jim/Pam) Letter Kenny (liking less) NO REALITY NO POLICE PROCEDURALS NO SHOWS W/ CORPSES (even if RomCom) Unless, Dexter (he could be me)
