I began writing poetry in 2008, after a few years devoted to songwriting. I have never received any training in writing poetry, nor am I an avid poetry reader. I do, however, recall being deeply moved as a teenager by a collection of very witty, though abstract, poems by a Polish author (unfortunately I don’t remember his name). I also enjoy the writings of Czesław Miłosz and Wisława Szymborska.

I find a great release in expressing my creativity through metaphorical and abstract writing, especially when conventional language and prose often seem to only address the superficial layers of human experience. In my poetry I often explore themes of uncertainty, loss, spirituality, sensuality, relationships, and absurdity of the contemporary world.
