As far as I know, I'm the only senior engineer at IBM with an advanced degree in poetry. By day I'm an information architect, by night I eat, breathe, and sleep poetry. I love to meditate, hike, read, write, recite, and teach. I'm especially fond of Rumi, also Mary Oliver, WS Merwin, Walt Whitman, Keats, Milton, and just about anybody with a gift for putting words together. I love to travel and see my friends in many cities - San Francisco, Los Angeles, Boston, DC, Charlottesville and just about anywhere.
