My background is in the IT industry, although I have been in the cleaning field for the last several years. I have dabbled in writing, on and off, probably my entire adult life. But the last several years have attempted to regularly write, mainly rhyming poetry. I branch off occasionally into short stories or free-verse poems.
Influences include daily life experiences, past experiences, local and international news, and anything else that triggers my muse. It is inspiring to cast out my thoughts on the greater world, where hopefully they will trigger further thought and (I hope) good actions.
