hi i'm steve roggenbuck; i make videos, poems, and podcasts.

my videos are the most popular thing i've made. there are over 100 of them, and you can watch them all: 2017, 2016, 2015, 2014, 2013, 2012, 2011!

i've also published six books of poetry (some are very short), which you can check out here, and i've performed my poetry at 300+ events in ten countries and all 50 united states.

i've made two podcasts, in which i discuss various subjects, including poetry and vegan food; you can listen here!

i also run boost house, a small publishing press that i started out of a vegan co-op house of the same name in 2014. our publications include the poetry anthologies MACRO and the yolo pages. i've also curated selections of internet-based poetry for the art institute of chicago and the centre d'art contemporain in geneva.

my work has been covered by the new york timesARTnewsgawkerthe new yorkerrolling stonethe faderNPRthe guardian, know your meme, and the atlantic. my videos have been shown at the new museum triennial, louisiana literature festival, oslo poesifilm festival, and rowing gallery.

more about me: i was born in 1987 and grew up in rural michigan. i played in death metal bands in high school. i've been vegan for 10 years. i like the sky; i like studying nutrition and health subjects; i like running and doing calisthenics (for example handstands).

i try to be responsive on social media and email, but i'm sorry i get way behind sometimes <3

thank you so much
