OTTAWA, Ont. (06/02/11)-- Dave Dessler, locally known as Crazzy Dave, in his apartment at the La Fayette in the Byward Market. Dessler spent three years living on the streets of the Market area, and supported himself by selling poetry, which he wrote on pieces of cardboard paper. Ontario Works helped Dessler get off the streets and get this apartment in which he has been living for over a year now. He recently acquired a computer and is now taking courses in Algonquin College for computer software, along with digitizing his creative writing. Dessler will have his own art show this summer at La Petite Mort Gallery in Ottawa.
