About The Smoky Poet

I am The Pitmaster, The Poet and The Storyteller. Formerly known as The Product Poet, I was once considered to be Twitter’s unofficial poet laureate. I love branding and haiku, while writing about BBQ, products, charities, travel and food.

As Chief Poet, I focus extensively on brand engagement and building of on-line communities through a unique blend of poetry and branding. Across various social networks, I have built a highly active, on-line community of brands, celebrities, writers, social media pundits and individuals. I am a brand ambassador and social media influencer.
