Born and raised in Cincinnati, a.k.a. Porkopolis,. I've strived to make myself a versatile artist. Starting in music performance and dance to spoken word where I had the opportunity to open for Jessica Care Moore. I also was a dj for independent radio stations bearcast.uc.edu(University of Cincinnati) and (mediabridges.org/radio.html), as well as filmmaking. By age 19, I directed my first documentary "Young Urban Perspective" a video about the 2001 Civil Unrest in Cincinnati, sprouted by the murder of Timothy Thomas by the CINCINNATI TERRORIST FORCE(cpd) which made national press. While enrolled at the local university I went on to make several doc/shorts about cincy, a host of music videos and movies. As well as taped numerous poetry/music and performance art showcases. In 2003, I hooked up with the Artistic order of 144k where I became their videographer and performed at many of their events as well as their tv show "The 144k show; Making a name for myself as a "Poet/Multimedia master", quoted by Khadija. That same year, I opened for Jessica Care Moore w/144k @ The Blast/Enjoy the Arts festival. CURRENTLY, you can find me performing across Cincinnati or in your local area, bar/pub, school, auditorium, coffee shop, or whatever is convient.
