Joseph Toman

Joseph Toman is an unpublished novelist, unproduced screenwriter, and universally derided poet, painfully aware he was born in the seventies and still working as a server in a restaurant.  


The son of Michigan factory workers, he attended school at Alma College to play football.  Promptly, Mr. Toman blew out his knee, discovered his passion as a writer, and graduated less promptly with a degree in nothing useful.  


After graduating, Joseph disappeared into Bolivia as a Peace Corps volunteer, and then wandered aimlessly after completion of his service. He has lost a laundry list of jobs including hotel manager, wine director and sommelier, construction worker, call center operator, political consultant, and janitor.


After visiting New Orleans directly after Katrina, Joseph Toman knew he’d found his place in the world.  He will remain here until his inevitable death.
