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 given me the space to explore my own experiences and find what matters to me. I want to help create that space for others.

Reading and writing have always been my creative outlet and way to finding my unrestrained self. Assisting in others being able to reach inside themselves to find this vulnerable point is all I could ever hope for. 

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.
