"I am a queer person of color, and a scuba dive master currently land-locked by circumstance in her native Colorado. A former surgical tech, I hold a BA in Neuroscience from Colorado College, but spent most of the past six years living abroad. When I can't be in the ocean, I use some of my rejected dive photos as backgrounds for found poetry made from various magazines and junk mailings. Some poems appear in The Closed Eye Open; 140Max Magazine; What Rough Beast; Sad Girls Club; and The Ice Colony; and travel adventures can be found at RandomPiecesofPeace.com."
