I am a poet. I pride myself in being able to say that now because a few years ago, I never would have had the courage to tell anyone that I wrote poems.

I am mostly inspired by others’ art, nature and human experiences throughout life – my own and those of others. Human experiences are so transferrable and almost every reader can relate to a poem, or interpret a poem in a way that resonates with their own experiences.
