Emiliano  Martin

A poet at heart who enjoys breathing rhyming thoughts in two languages has written thousands of poems and presented his verse in public as well as in print.

The audience loves the drama of his verse along with his interpretation. Often for nothing… sometimes to show off but always to satisfy his ego… the legend goes on.
