I am a self published Author/Poet from providence Rhode island, however I now live in Atlanta and have been for fifteen years. Poetry is one of my biggest passions, I have been writing and entering contests since I was 15. I have always loved writing poetry as well as performing it. Poetry to me is being able to paint an abstract picture and put it into words. Words that give you inspiration, words that give you understanding, words that give you strength, and words that give you a more profound look into a person's heart and mind. I have entered and won every Talent show I have been in (which is three). I am also the winner of the 2007 Atlanta Annual Decatur Book festival Poetry slam. I was also a finalist in the Atlanta V-103 Poetry Slam, and was featured on Atlanta's V-103 radio station. I have also performed all around Atlanta including Java Monkey and Apache Cafe. I have Published two poetry books in the last 3 years and I am currently working on my third poetry book. This will be my first time entering the The Poetry Marathon(2020). I can't wait to write and to meet this awesome community. I really believe apart of life is about sharing our moments, passions, and experiences with one another because WE ARE ALL ONE.
