Weddings & Events


At the reception, I’ll provide my standard service of one-of-a-kind poems for your guests, only we will let them know that all poems requested will go into a handmade book for the bride and groom.  In this way, with coaching from me,  they can call on their knowing the bride and groom to select topics that are of value to both themselves and the newlyweds.  In this way we collaborate to create a beautiful collection of poems celebrating the bride and groom

They keep the hard copy as a gift from you, while I take a picture of the poem and a picture of them.  Both poem and photo of the loved one who requested it are included in the book.  This book can be a simple book hand crafted by me or something as elaborate as a letterpress, leather bound, book hand crafted by a book artist.

This is the most unique entertainment available for a wedding. The guests who request poems get to keep the hard copy as a gift from the bride and groom. This interactive style of entertainment is personal to guests and ultimately to the bride and groom, as reflected in the beautifully made book of poems, composed in celebration of their love.


I can bring poetry and entertainment to any event. Aside from creating poems for people, I also have a one-man, multimedia, performance of Poems While You Wait: a presentation of stories, poems, photos and video from my twelve years of poeming. This show is comic, deeply sincere, and is flexible in duration (twenty to seventy minutes long).


I’ve gone into North High School in Denver as guest teacher several times. I love working with teens. My aim is to turn them on to their own voice, how to recognize and appreciate authentic language, in themselves and others. This is an exploration of language and expression that applies and nourishes everyone, not just those interested in poetry.

I love teaching and am available to lecture, tutor, or workshop.
