Beryl Dov Lew was born in Brooklyn, a small shtetl in New York. He has a Ph.D. ABD in Theatre and in Philosophy, and has been told he paints equally well with a palette of words or color. He’s won numerous awards, including the coveted ECHO Award in direct mail marketing and the even more enviable Largest Circumcised Penis in Southeast Asia Award presented by Oscar Meyer. He is the author of A Primer of Love, 165 Tools & Techniques to Jumpstart Creativity, four volumes of exquisite poetry to die for and a book of comedy pieces entitled, Drink, Piss, Fuck -- the long awaited sequel to Shit, Shower, Shave. He has been published in numerous journals, and his humorous spin on life has made him a persona non grata wherever frankness is unwelcome.
