Brian Dorn hails from the time-honored village of Ballston Spa, NY.  A graduate of the University at Albany (NY) and SUNY Adirondack, Brian initially made a name for himself by effectively leveraging cyber space to  circulate his particular brand of poetry on the internet.  Thanks to the world-wide web, Brian Dorn's poetry has reached an audience far beyond upstate NY. 

Brian Dorn has written a vast array of poems, many of which can be found in his current book, From My Poems To Yours (The Live Versions).  Brian is currently focused on developing a stage production modeled after his poem of the same name ("We All").  A sample of Brian Dorn's work (including videos) can be found on his official website at .
