Uche Ogbuji, born in Calabar, Nigeria, has lived, among other places, in Egypt and England, but never anywhere longer than three years until he came to Colorado. He was instantly smitten by the mountain landscape and cultural flavor and has now settled near Boulder with his wife and four children. Educated mostly in Nigeria, Uche is a computer engineer and entrepreneur whose abiding passion is poetry. His poems, fusing Igbo culture, European Classicism, U.S. Mountain West setting, and Hip-Hop influences, have appeared widely in journals and anthologies. He is editor at Kin Poetry Journal and The Nervous Breakdown, founder and curator at the @ColoradoPoetry Twitter project. Uche also snowboards, coaches and plays soccer, and trains in American Kenpo Karate.
