Poetry is my jam.
I write lyric poems, free verse, forms (with a particular love for sonnets and sestinas), elegies, and slam poems. Poems that are meant to be sung, to be spoken, to be read silently on a train in the rain, to live in books, to be kept in the back pocket of your jeans, just in case (who doesn’t need an emergency poem now and then?).
I was a member of the 2016 Lobo Slam team, the University of New Mexico’s official poetry slam team and have competed in ABQ’s City Slam and the Albuquerque WOWPS qualifier.
I can frequently be found performing at Albuquerque slams and open mics. If you’d like to hire me to perform poetry, please contact me.
