The Artistself_portrait poem

I barely remember this myself, but I am apparently a published poet. Back in fourth grade, I wrote a poem titled, "My Brother," and it got published in an anthology of student poetry. I was pretty dumb in fourth grade and couldn't have gotten the moral of the story more wrong; but I was supposedly creative long ago. Click on the image to the right to see the poem in better resolution.

I was also a surprisingly good sketcher, too, although I never really progressed beyond pencil. The picture to the far right is a drawing I made of myself when I was in 9th grade. I've gotten a little fatter, but still look pretty much the same.

Recently, I both moved and had to clear out my parents' house in Minnesota. As a result, I found a lot of old stuff that I'm still proud of, although I'm still looking for a poem I wrote in eighth grade about stepping on bugs and a movie I made as a high school freshman titled, "Scrog Wars." Still, it's fun to see what one can do artistically with a little effort. It's all inspired me to be more creative as an adult.

My Dad, the Genealogist

My dad spent a ton of time exploring his roots, and compiled an impressive amount of material and knowledge. I'm slowly but surely scanning his numerous binders. Click here to see the one he titled, "Me and the Kwongs."
