Dennis is a politically incorrect, mad at the world, X Generation, heathen,
musician, and writer from Orange County California. Dennis moved to North
Georgia in 2007 and is quietly preparing for the inevitable zombie apocalypse.
He has been writing in one form or another since high school. His warped
rantings and observations about the cesspool of a world we are surviving in
keeps his spiraling descent into madness at bay.
Dennis has had his poetry published by the League of American Poets, the
American Poets Society, The Horrorzine, 63Channels, Black Petals, Death Head
Grin, Word Salad Poetry Magazine and Tree Killer Ink, Yellow Mama, blah, blah,
blah! He has released two spoken-word CD's, A Random Litter of Thought (2006)
and Paid in Full (2007) on
Batteryface Records. A short film of Dennis’ poem Hollywood was made
available to coincide with the release of Paid in Full.
