A new participant in the world of spoken word poetry, I am a former aspiring rapper who made my first public poetry performance at the National Labor Committee's December 6, 2000 March to End Sweatshop Abuses in New York City. In front of nearly three-thousand spectators, I stepped up to the mike to recite a poem I entitle, "Re-Visionaries." A 1996 graduate of U.C.LA, I majored in American Literature and Cultures, and originally focused no becoming active in the film community. However, my previous rapping battles in my hometown of Oakland, California would be what would come in handy most as I've recently turned my attention to the explosive world of spoken word poetry. My biggest influences are Langston Hughes, Nikki Giovanni and my personal inspiration, SLAM champion Saul Williams. This is one rose still waiting to grow: concrete beware!
