My name is Dwight Okita and I am based in Chicago. I am an avid coffee drinker and movie-goer, language lover, tech-friendly without getting geeky about it. I'm an award-winning novelist and frequently anthologized poet. And I'm proud of the websites and videos I've created for my wonderful, quirky, talented clients.
