dave boles

dave boles (bodhi), has worked as an itinerant Publisher, Writer and Designer since 1981. Founder of the magazine Primal Urge, he also created The Sacramento Free Press, Cruisin' Magazine, Foothill Focus, Neural Impulse Publications, Cold River Press and Bodhidharma Publishing.  His publications, editorials, writing, graphic design and artwork have won numerous awards in a thirty plus year career in publishing, publishing such noted writers as D.R. Wagner, A.D. Winans, Charles Plymell, Gerard Malanga, S.A. Griffin, Ben Hiatt, Susan Kelly DeWitt and many, many more.

An inveterate traveler and artist, he has published, designed, edited or written numerous books, magazines, articles, ads and periodicals both nationally and internationally.

Known to drift in changing directions at the drop of a hat, he has also worked as a High Tower Rigger; Long Haul Trucker hauling everything from apples, to beer, to hazardous waste and explosives; radio talk show host; Renaissance Faire Magician and Bodice Merchant; a short stint once as a Life Insurance salesman that ended rather badly and a Corporate Mercenary for hire.

He is a life long gear head and speed freak, customizing cars, trucks and motorcycles with his goal of irritating the noise police as his primary directive.  He is also a devoted collector of tattoo.

A protege of acclaimed poet and alternative publisher Ben L. Hiatt, dave embraces the ever changing literary and political structure as he continues to ponder Hiatt's school of Okie Surrealism.  Mescalito, a lifelong friend, keeps watch over him to this day, sending a Red Hawk to check in on him from time to time. He resides with his wife, Mrs. America, at Lake House, the Illuminated Monkey's Home For Wayward Poets And Socially Bereft Humans.
