David Olimpio grew up in Texas, but currently lives and writes in Northern New Jersey. He believes that we create ourselves through the stories we tell, and that is what he aims to do every day. Usually, you can find him driving his pick-up around the Garden State with one of his two dogs, Rothko and Honey, both of whom maintain his photo blog. He has been published in The Nervous Breakdown, Awst Press, The Austin Review, The Rappahannock Review, Crate, and other places. You can find more about him here including links to his writing and photography. He tweets every day about a broad range of important topics, from the ontological meaning of dog-poop bags to the erotic potential of red velvet cake. He would love for you to join him: @notsolinear.
