Home page:

I have honed my skills on the streets and the gutters and in prison where I spent many years with the dregs of humanity.
Now I run workshops with children and youth at risk and those in conflict with the law within correctional institutions and the broader community and am currently working on a commissioned biography.

In many ways poetry has been and remains, the pristine habitat of my sanity within the often vulgar, turmoil of living where the essence of beauty finds form through expression.
my poetry has been published in various international anthologies as well as ROOTZ Magazine.

i have written for theatre and have contributed significantly to the development of various documentaries.
