Born April 7th 1950, in Herkimer, New York, along the Mohawk River near the foothills
of the Adirondack Mountains and raised in Ilion, New York (just across the river)
Dah has been a resident of Berkeley, California since 1980.

A writer and an award-winning photographer, Dah has been writing for over fifty years
and according to himself, he has not reached the degree of writing that he knows
exists somewhere in his mind.

Dah’s poetry has been published internationally and three of his manuscripts
have been published into books by ‘Stillpoint Books’ (Spokane, Washington) and his fourth book was published in July 2015 by ‘Transcendent Zero Press’ (Houston, Texas)

Since 2013, 180 of Dah’s poems and two essays were published in 80-plus reviews, journals, and magazines by editors from the U.S., U.K., Ireland, Canada, China, Philippines, India, Australia, Africa and Spain.

Much of Dah’s poetry exhibits indelible imagery of nature for which he feels
a mystical connection and his poetry can be beautifully melancholic due to
the gloomy emotional and sorrowful condition of humanity, politics, religion
and the world.
