April Gertler

I love April Gertler's collages. There is something wildly funny and a little unsettling about them. She's a German born, California-raised Berliner, and she's got a deft touch with a pair of snippers. I think it takes cohones to rip into an old photograph (found or inherited) and subvert it like this.

Emerging Writers' Festival

Gearing up for the Emerging Writers' Festival. I've been calling it my 'coming out' as a poet.
You can see me perform alongside Matt Blackwood and Sophia Chapman.
