As he states about himself in his book, The Flow Chronicles: "Besides frantically writing the flow of life, the urban hermitt likes to shop at natural foods co-ops, take naps, listen to and perform hip hop, freestyle, skateboard, hug trees, and to be a zine geek." He often ignores traditional grammar and stylistic constraints.
