The "Redbird Speaking Compassion to Power" collage was originally intended to serve as a companion-piece to an essay titled "Speaking Compassion to Power."

After being born and raised in the southeastern United States, I spent many years, while pursuing my education and serving in the U.S. Air Force, traveling around America and the world. Much of that story is told in my recent book releases, Greeting Flannery OConnor at the Back Door of My Mind and Dreams of the Immortal City Savannah.

I am currently completing an artbook project on the COVID-19 pandemic with text contributions from writers around the world.
