Darryl Davis embraces a life-long passion for writing poetry which eschews the White Tower and leaves the reader feeling included rather than sitting on the sidelines listening to him type. He regularly marries the written word with all-original images which contribute to the overall story. His poems and/or photographs have featured in various on-line and printed journals around the world and his professional essays have also appeared in Benefits and Compensation International. His first collection of illustrated poetry – In Between Places – was published in June 2013 and is available on Amazon. Darryl hails from Upstate New York and holds a MA in History from the University of Connecticut at Storrs. He and his family live in Brussels, Belgium where he is a senior consultant for a professional services firm.
