Poetry is a way to express my most honest self. Through performance poetry, I have the courage to be vulnerable and invite others to be vulnerable with me.

As a gay man, I believe education and language should be taught to promote inclusivity and open thought. Poetry acts as a catalyst for that goal.

Writing has always provided me with a medium to express myself and my identities. Now I find my passion in uplifting the voices of others.

With many creative projects and workshop facilitations under their belt, our team is looking to the future as we  develop and build the Poetics Lab into a true community-based program centered on identity, poetry and performance.
