In a nutshell, I am a poet, a photographer, and a cook. Most important of all, I am Deaf. My deafness is, however, not the banality of creativity. It is, in fact, another differential treatment the world has imparted upon me and my fellow Deaf poets and writers for generations.  I have every intention to show the human qualities of being a disabled man – a Deaf man – in America. I invite you to join me and explore the artistry of my Being.
