I am a freelance writer who found my voice while walking repeated penitentiary terms in California and Arizona. I have had poems, essays, and a short story published, and I'm currently working on a book of poetry which I plan to include a cd of spoken word inside of.


Background Information

My major influences were the members of the Harlem Renaissance.  I look to their example, the way they told the stories of their generation, and I seek to do the same for mine.  Additionally, I am a hip-hop baby, fed by rap's nipple, I grew strong.  From the Last Poets and Gil Scott to Grand Master Flash and the Furious Five, my soul overflows with the wizened words of street griots.

Birth Place
Edinburg,  Scotland
Accomplishments

PEN American Center Prison Poetry Contest 2007 2nd Honorable Mention
