I believe that poetry offers us the opportunity to slow down, to cherish the small details, to help us think more deeply about the world and our place in it.
Whether giving a reading from my recent collection, or performing the multi-media collaboration of Eyes, Stones,
my work offers audiences an opportunity to leave with an expanded sense of compassion, and asking what we can do together to create a new reality.
