Background Information

Poetry has flowed through my mind since the age of 10, blowin' my family's mind with visions of underwater kingdoms and castles in the sky. Started performing in D.C. at it's your M.U.G., formerly in Georgetown. Met up with some old school poets an joined the Vagabond Poetry Crew. Performed at the Kaffa House (in its prime), State of the Union, GWU, and Mango's. Went on to join up with brotha Mathew Payne and the Movement. This allowed me to start being featured as an individual poet, hosting open mic sets at Bar Nun, allowing me to attain more exposure throughout the east coast.
