Poet, Spoken Word Artist

Author's Bio

Poetry is a practice of communicating the intimate, the everyday; the local and the global. It is a way to negotiate the language of the body, the language of the spirit, and the language of the communal. There is of course much more, but the journey is the poem, or the poem is the journey.
