Daniel Hampton is a writer/rambler born and raised in Bakersfield. He recently received a degree in English Language and Literature from California State University Bakersfield and is currently enrolled in California State University Long Beach’s Creative Writing Masters program. He’ll write absurdist stories about sandwiches with the same zeal he writes heartfelt poetry, much to the befuddlement of others. He envisions himself as a jack of all trades kind of creative writer but has extreme difficulty in talking about himself in the third person. Oh well.
