hi im steve roggenbuck, im a poet + video artist. my work explores (among other things) the new forms that poetry, humor, and spirituality might take on the internet. my work has been covered by rolling stone, npr, the new yorker, the fader, the atlantic, know your meme, gawker, the guardian, and the ny times style mag. i recently started boost house, a publisher and arts residency. i currently live vegan and sober in maine.
i'm known most for my videos. my favorite work is collected in these playlists: best of 2014, best of 2013, best of 2012, or best of 2011. sometimes i post other media on my tumblr blog live my lief, and on twitter, facebook, and instagram.
