ARTIST MISSION STATEMENT: ABOUT MY WORK
I am a poet, playwright, filmmaker and composer/producer living in the Greater Cincinnati area. My current work centers around my Wild Sonnets literary project, and a series of large-scale music compositions called the Atomic Symphonies.
To characterize what I create in an inclusive and conclusive way, my output (regardless of medium) is always finding ways to combine the techniques, technology and trends of contemporary art with the scope and structure of classical forms. The conceit is to energize the balance and intricacy of the great traditions with the vibe and dynamic of what is happening now.
I have already produced a large catalogue of work, and much of it is accessible here on this site. Feel free to browse and listen. I hope you find experiences here to enjoy.
There are now 6 Wild Sonnets books. Each volume features 100 poems.
The Wild Sonnets: Volume VII (601-700) to be released Summer 2024.
