The artist known as "Phread" I have been a performance poet, slam master, actor, writer, singer, comic and storyteller for many years. I have also worked in PR, events production, non-profit consulting & fund raising (including marketing & development), project management, tech writing, and public speaking. In addition, I have worked as a radio and newspaper reporter as well as an editor for all kinds of publications. I have taught ESL classes and done some substitute teaching in various schools. I am a full-time student at the University of Utah for the next year, completing a minor in Creative Writing and a major in Mass Comm/PR. I have performed at First Night, BMOCA, The Irradiated Poets Summer Event and at many other events and schools in Utah, Colorado, Oregon and Washington. I am also a published poet, having some of my poetry appear in several regional and national magazines and quarterly anthologies. I have also had some of my short stories electronically published at Warm Fuzzy Stories and GrandpaGrandmaSmith, among other newsletters. And I’m working on a novel or two, plus several more short stories and screenplays. My web site should be operational soon, too!
