Welcome to Shattering The Lens!

Thanks for visiting my my blog. I’m a poet, avid poker player, expert home cook, foster parent, and aspiring novelist. I’m a husband, close friend to a few people, and parent to two nutty cats named Manny and Rory.

I started this blog 12 years ago on a whim. I wanted to create a space where I could write about many different topics, basically anything I had any thoughts about, and share that writing. Since then, my life and interests have grown, shifted, and changed. With them, the blog has evolved into this current iteration. I’ve found that there are a few things I am passionate about, and that is what my blog now focuses on. Everything else has been archived, distant memories and experiences that helped shape who I have become.

The menu is on the left, just click the hamburger. It’s the gateway to my poetry, my life, and my other interests.

I’m not as focused as I used to be on sharing my opinions, or even having opinions, on most things. But that’s not to say there aren’t still things I care about. The topics most important to me are in the menu as well.

Thanks for visiting!
