Community Publications

For three years, I hosted a neighborhood blog called "Life in the Village". This blog was my personal view of my neighborhood in Southeast Washington, DC.

Occasionally, I contribute to Greater Greater Washington.

Personal Publications

While most people do not chose to publish their poems, I have decided to share mine with the world. As the main title, Images in the Mirror suggests, I believe that readers will be able see parts of their own lives in my poems. Putting this collection together was truly a healing experience for me. I experienced the divorce of my parents and the awkward years of middle school and high school. There is someone out there who has had or is having a similar experience.
