Born April 7th 1950, in Herkimer, New York and raised in Ilion, New York, along the Mohawk River, Dah has been a resident of Berkeley, California since 1980. Besides being a prolific writer, he is yoga teacher and an award-winning photographer.

Much of Dah’s poetry exhibits indelible imagery of nature for which he is deeply connected to, and, at times, his poetry can be beautifully melancholic, due to the gloomy emotionally and spiritually depleted conditions of humanity, politics, and religion.

To date, 407 of Dah’s poems and two essays have been published in 100-plus reviews, journals, magazines and books.
