Creative Work

In my spare time I enjoy writing poems and short stories that combine my love of nature and insects with my more philosophical side. I am currently working on a piece called "The Last Instar," a story about a young dragonfly nymph who finds out that his wetland home is in danger of becoming too polluted for his family and friends to continue living there. The main character's name is Aesh, which is derived from a common family of dragonflies, Aeshnidae.

Feel free to check out my most recent draft of "The Last Instar," and other poems in the links provided!
