Favorite book: Infinite Jest
Member type: Author
Member Since: Sep 13, 2006
Bio: Background in NY/LA entertainment and arts, Now Novelist/Poet/Humanist. Two novels published: ECHOSIS, 3 WAY MIRROR. Poems published in "Said and Unsaid" Vol 1. In 2012 - 2 volumes of my poetry were published: "Prosetry at Work," and "Perceptions" (The latter as photo/prosetry art book on Lulu) I am especially intrigued with prosetry and slam poetry artists, especially those who come across with sophisticated street cred and reveal both historical and contemporary philosophical influence. I always have and will continue to see myself as a student of behavior, intent on acquiring a respectable level of wisdom along the way. Of great influence is David Foster Wallace, Neruda, Camus, Zen and world history.
