In a failed attempt to escape Presto I left my hometown of Mississauga under the guise of becoming a Toronto-based artist. I strive to share authentic and engaging stories with audiences through my work as a producer, playwright, poet and educator.
After becoming the Toronto Poetry Slam (TPS) Grand Champion in 2017, I went on to captain the 2017 TPS team that became national champions at the Canadian Festival of Spoken Word, and coached the 2018 national champions as well. I also competed in Vancouver in April 2018 at the Canadian Individual Poetry Slam and placed 2nd in the country.
And NOW, I've been given the opportunity to represent CANADA at the WORLD CUP OF POETRY SLAM this May 28th – June 1st in Paris France.
I'm raising money to help cover the costs of this wondrous adventure and would appreciate any support! It would mean the world to me to get your help to bring my words to the world!
