Alaskan native, Daniel Cox was born January 26th, 1966, in Ketchikan, Alaska.

Daniel has been in Portland, Oregon for ten years and has been a Street Roots vendor for five. His poems have been published in many issues of Street Roots and other small run publications.

Daniel aspires to have more of his works published and hopes that people can hear his message through his poetry. “My wish is that through my words, people can recognize that we are all people who have minds, souls and compassion and that it is important to have respect for each other, regardless of background, social status and race. Everyone deserves to be treated with care and respect”.  

 “I’m just lucky I guess”.
