I grew up in a small town in Michigan. I’ve lived in Columbus for the past 20 years. Music has always been my biggest inspiration. My first poems I didn’t even consider poems, they were song lyrics. I had written poems but those were mostly out of school assignments. It was when I experienced my first poetry open mic in the city that I started writing outside of a verse/chorus/verse structure. Music still plays an important role in inspiring me nowadays, mixed with the people I’ve met along the way. As of right now, I personally have no events or workshops but that could always change in the future. I do enjoy coffee but don’t drink it regularly. At least not enough to say I have a favorite.
