Joe.02.17.08

Began writing poetry at age 11, stories in my teens and memoirs in my late 40’s. Also paint, draw, collage & photograph. Over the years I have paid the rent by working in factories, banks, too many restaurants (from cleaning the toilets to management), a hardware store, a lily bulb farm and a photo studio. I have been a wedding photographer, a pornographer, a fern picker, an advertising distributor, a journalist, a landscape gardener, a commercial fisherman (sort of) and an outlaw farmer. Since 1990 I have been working in law offices, which I continue to find disconcerting.
