About

Humor.
Empathy.
Logic.
Passion.

What more can you ask for in a person?

But what less can you accept?

My mission is to inspire kids to embrace these four values. My personal medium is poetry, which you’ll find peppered throughout this space. I hope that you enjoy it, and, if you like it, share it. Mostly, though, I encourage you to reach out to kids in your own way. If we really expect them to lead the world someday, they are going to need a lot of HELP.
