Media Room

Welcome!

I've been blessed to have many wonderful opportunities to share my poems and short stories, as a featured artist, open mic contributor, performance artist, and event co-host.

These experiences have led to many collaborations and interviews nationally and internationally.

Videos 

Videos are fun!

Whether I am sharing my own love poems, brainstorming ideas behind the scenes, or joining in the "What Needs To Happen" series conversations, the topics are insightful and informative. You never know what someone else is going through until you have a conversation.
