Expression through writing, music, and teaching has been a passion since I turned twenty-three years old and recorded my first CD (many years ago!). I taught my first creative writing workshop one year later. Enormous dedication and a commitment to authenticity have given me the fortune of winning awards for my music, teaching, and writing research. The awards mean a lot, but they never exceed the gift of learning from life and being true to myself. This is what I hope for in every student I meet.

Keeping Things Whole


In a field
I am the absence
of field.
This is
always the case.
Wherever I am
I am what is missing.

When I walk
I part the air
and always
the air moves in 
to fill the spaces
where my body's been.

We all have reasons
for moving.
I move
to keep things whole. 


-Mark Strand
