"Literature is that which denounces and slashes apart the repressing machine at the level of the signified."--Kathy Acker
Recently I've begun experimenting with live storytelling. In addition to presenting work in writing or radio-essay format, I am increasingly drawn to storytelling culture. I am also currently working on “Pretending to Be Civilized,” a creative non-fiction project realized on the page, for performance, and in audio format.
