Tristan is the pen name of a young writer from the Oregon Coast. A fisherman and a poet, he writes from the perspective of a new deeply involved wordsmith, in expressing himself through the written word, and enriching his soul. He wants to share his journey with you, and to share his creativity and his words with you.
In Tristan's life, there have been crises, struggles, and challenges. His courage and his character to deal with life's obstacles is reflected in his writing.
"I want my work to flow like a wild river, carving its own path. The river is sometimes inhibited by dams that suspend the natural flow of something. I want people to feel something, feel uncomfortable, feel sad, hurt, broken, happy, but just feel."
Tristan's poems have been published in "The Echo" newsletter and Honoring Our Rivers (2018), an anthology of writing by inmates of the Eastern Oregon Correctional Institution, in Pendleton, Oregon.
