Hi y’all! I just won first place in the monthly Final Friday poetry slam here in Albuquerque, much to my surprise!! (After a couple not-so-great performances in the last few weeks). Thrilled to share the stage with some super talented local poets and the featured ABQ poetry slam team, leaving for Boston on August 12th! Keep checking my website for upcoming performances, including a feature performance on August 18th!
Hi everyone! Thanks so much for subscribing! I promise to keep posts short and only frequent enough to keep things interesting….
I had my slam poetry debut last Friday at “Final Friday” at Winnings Coffee House. It was an incredible show hosted by slam champs Damien Flores and Jazz Cuffee, and with a feature by the super unique Esmé Vaandrager. Many in attendance felt even the open mic was better than many slams — that is to say all the performances that night were awesome, and I was thrilled to be in the company of such talent and cool people.
Anywho I made the second round — not too bad for a first time slammer! 🙂 Truth be told I was unprepared to make the second round, and the poem I brought was too long. Even without the time penalty I missed placing by .1 points. WOW!

See you at the next show!
P.S. A few of you have asked to see/listen to my music. It’s coming — right now I’m focused on poetry, but I think I’m going to be doing some shareable music sooner rather than later!
