What do you do and Why do you do it? 
I love writing, reciting poetry, telling stories, and being an actor. These are gifts from God. I would be foolish and insulting if I didn’t utilize them to the fullest.
Tell us about your most recent work.
james gordon artAngelica’s Box The Evolving is the continuing and raising of a previous bar set by its predecessor, Angelica’s Box.
