Austin, Texas
Most of my Poetry is centered around -
"Love" (and the unsuccessful pursuit of it)
"Angst" (told through tales of excess and addiction)
"Transcendence" (escaping the yoke of egoic illusion by embracing the ineffable infinity of internal divinity)

The remaining poems are oftentimes the salvaged scraps of lyrics (from my forgotten college dreams of SoundCloud bedroom pop stardom) that have gained a new life.
"Uncouth Youth" and "Distracted In Hell" are my stream-of-consciousness blogs (aren't they all?) in which I hold poorly reasoned conversations with me, myself and I to expound upon whichever deep-seated insecurities are currently plaguing my psyche.
I like to imagine Jack Kerouac riding upon the cosmic wheel of time; shedding a single mescaline-soaked tear whilst reading my tales of tomfoolery.
