Bad Words is a personal collection of illustration and poetry. It's a humorous look at the caveats of relationships, hypocrisies of everyday life and the core of what makes us human. Shel Silverstein has been a huge influence on me. To this day, I love to read his poetry. Bad Words is my twist on those classic poetry books.

In the future, I plan to organize and launch a Kickstarter to cover the costs of printing and publishing the first edition. I would like to continue the series of Bad Words with a second book of short stories.
