Jack's bio:

  • Born: 1955 in Glendale, CA
  • Raised:  Sun Valley and La Puente, CA
  • Currently resides in Wichita, KS with his wife, Nadyne.
  • Between them they have six grown children and five grandkids.


Jack's background includes several years of business development and over twenty-five years in the computer industry. During this time he has had many articles explaining technology to the layperson published in various print and web magazines and journals.

Jack had his first poems published at age 10 when his fifth grade teacher submitted two pieces that were accepted by a literary magazine. Since then Jack has written poetry off and on throughout his life, taking it up seriously in the summer of 2007.

Jack began taking photos while in grade school with his first Brownie camera, given to him by his grandmother. As with his poetry, Jack prefers interesting takes on commonplace themes.

The definition of ekphrastic poetry is a "descriptive work of prose or poetry, a film, or even a photograph (that) highlights through its rhetorical vividness what is happening, or what is shown in, say, any of the visual arts, and in doing so, may enhance the original art and so take on a life of its own through its brilliant description" (see ekprasis at www.reference.com).  In 2007, Jack realized that he had been practicing this art form without knowing it.  Since then, he has combined well over 100 poems and photographs.  Though each piece can stand on its own, both the poem and photo are enhanced through their pairing.

"I was working on the proof of one of my poems all the morning, and took out a comma. In the afternoon I put it back again."
