Welcome Poets & Poet Friends,
I’d like to thank the City of Calgary for appointing me to serve as Poet Laureate for Calgary, 2018-2020. Thus far, it’s been a dream job and I’m enjoying the ride. If you are interested in getting me involved in something, please contact me and let’s talk.
My Modus Operandi:
- To Explore, Discover & Express
- To facilitate others to find & claim their own song & to sing it
- The inclusion of all voices and ideas
- To cut through spiritual materialism
- To find an authentic voice
- To delve deeper into spirit, and
- To listen
Humanity + Love + Inclusion + Authenticity + Truth + Fierceness.
