Martin Kloess (Mhatter99)

Joined 7 years ago from San Francisco




Also follow me on:

A son of San Francisco since my first school days. My plans were to become a music teacher. I earned my BA degree at San Francisco State College. Somehow I found myself working for an oil company. They sent me to the San Francisco Academy of Arts to learn graphic arts for the printing field. This all lead to a job with almost limitless creative potential. In addition I was encouraged to engage in charity work.

In 1991 I joined the Freemasons. I became very active in their ritual, education and must of all charity endeavors. My forte was public schools, our youth and Toys for Tots. In addition, I coached youth soccer for 13 years. Noted for my work with young adults, I hold several youth protection certificates.

Now retired, I turn my attentions to poetry.

My books:

Joy's Summer Memories – Introduction


Joy’s Summer Memories - A Time To Love
