I do speaking engagements, poetry readings/performances, and facilitate a variety of workshops. My passion is giving back what I learn. I love customizing what I offer up to people, organizations, and communities so drop me a line on what you are looking for, possible dates, times, and we can see what we can come up with! My primary focuses are on: Healing & Addiction, Breaking Silence & Creating Healing Spaces, Poetry as a Tool for Social Justice, and Living with Purpose and Passion.
