Profile Information

Hello everyone! My full name is Geoffrey Marshall Regent and the name I created as the umbrella underwhich all my art/poetry etc is submitted is the name of my company/web domain name; GeoZarT. I was born in Denton,Texas on July 21st of 1957. I'm the oldest brother of four boys, with a sister older and a sister younger than all of us boys. Six wild "honyaks" as my father called us. My dad was an artist and spent most of his life teaching at Ray High School in Corpus Christi, Texas which allowed him to persue his art without "having" to sell it to get by. My mom was an English teacher at Del Mar College in Corpus, for a few years and also worked for the Costal Bend Council of Governments as a program planner. She was the poet of the family. I guess you could say, I got a bit of the artist thing from dad, and a bit of the poetry thing from my mom. I was too wild as a young man to stick around in Corpus and at 17 I dropped out of High School to join the Marines and see the world. In my first year in the Corps I joined 2nd ANGLICO graduated as the "Iron Mike"(that's what the Army called the Disdinguished Honor Graduate) of my class in the Army's Parachute Training Course at Fort Benning, Georgia. This got me accepted into the Marine Security Guard program in the Corps and I managed to see a good deal of Africa and Some of Europe as an Embassy Guard. After Embassy Duty I joined Recon and trained as a military SCUBA diver and went to Ranger School; spending a total of nearly seven years in the Corps. Then I returned to civilian life working various jobs such as; a Cable TV Lineman, an Electrician, a Building, Equipment and Vehicle Maintainence Tech and a Child Care Worker, working with abused boys, ages 10 to 18... just to name a few. So here I am at 63, retired and finding that I now want to share my art and my writing with a larger audience than just my Facebook friends. I'd like to discover whether or not my art and poetry are genuinely worthy of a larger audience and if so, see what new vistas may open as a result. All the cover art, you see for my poems and any short stories I might submit, was created by me using either Photoshop or GIMP.
