these fountains rare here, a concept album that's part radio-play, part deviant-folk, part art-pop, is now available on Spotify, Apple Music, Amazon...basically anywhere you get your music.  Learn more here.

Here's the album "trailer":

Or listen to the art-pop black birds, or punk-jazz ladyies indulge.

Profile Information

Performance Discipline
I make things with words.
Post-modern sea shanties. A virtual scrapbook. A tea-party for voice and debris. Audio excavation. Power-point presentations about free-ways, coffee-houses, cubicles, and the abyss. Poems, some of which look like plays.

"I am not an abstractionist...I'm interested in basic human emotions...tragedy, ecstasy, doom, and so on..." --Mark Rothko

And so on.

Happens and happening mostly in NYC.

Published: Adbusters, 2RiverView, HOW2, The Open Page. My poem for 4 women and a wolf, (stillness), was a finalist for the 2008 Jane Chambers award for feminist performance text.

I have a newer play about passion. It has a panel discussion with Heloise & Abelard, a lecture about an immense lake that turns into a coin, and a lonely man at a bar who just came down from the Empire State Building where he didn't hear God. Will you produce this play?

Training: mathematical. theatrical. Roy Hart voice work.
