Unconventional Poetry Unconventional Thoughts
Born and raised in NYC, I lived in Austin, Texas for many years (where I received a BA & MLIS from UT-Austin) and currently reside in Raleigh, NC. I’m a librarian and have been writing poetry (on and off) since my early 20s. Several of my poems were published in various anthologies in 2022. I’ve also written short stories and novels–and have published book, film, and music reviews in the 1980-1990s. Most of my recent poems strive to integrate various modern (i.e., post-WWI) techniques and approaches (e.g., Dadaism, surrealism, found poetry, text manipulation, concrete/visual poetry, LANGUAGE poetry, confessional poetry).
i’m an nyc-based korean-american he/him artist currently involved with building graphical music notation software, writing poems that change, playing melodica, and running the non-profit arts journal, nothing to say.
i’m an intellectual property abolitionist and advocate for free software and art; everything i make is under copyleft licenses.
i believe that every person is the same person born into different bodies and circumstances, and that if we could understand this things might be a lot nicer.
