I use a blend of the written, spoken, and visual word to raise awareness and drive change around issues that matter. Check out my short movies and kinetic typography poems on YouTube. Taking poetry into visual form brings the message behind my poems to broader audiences. I love experimenting with different literary art forms, infusing creative styles to make poetry cool again, breathing life into what can otherwise be one-dimensional words on a page. Being able to amplify my voice in this way to speak for others who are silently suffering at the mercy of bullies and violence is my way of giving back to the community..
