I am a poet, photographer and musician and workshop facilitator.  I offer a writing workshop, Cultivating a Daily Writing Practice, in Orvieto, Italy each November.  

In 2007 I founded Noepe Center for Literary Arts and the Italy Writing Workshop in 2012.  I was West Tisbury, Massachusetts Poet Laureate from 2013-2016 and am the current Martha's Vineyard Poet Laureate.  


We are given certain gifts.  If we don't use them, we are wasting our divine gift. My work has always been about making sense of life through the creative process.  "God, I am not mine," Michelangelo exclaimed in the midst of painting the Sistine Chapel.  I am searching for that 'dissolution' in my work. For me Art is not about the product, it is always the process.  The work is the prayer.
