Writing poetry and painting, for me, are liberating acts of self-discovery and self-disclosure. Capturing an idea or a feeling through words or by putting paintbrush to canvas can be powerfully transformative. These creative tools are what I use to connect to the divine in me (as the divine lives in us all). Through them, I am able to say the ineffable, able to know the incomprehensible and able to feel that which my heart may be somewhat hesitant about engaging. Ultimately, through my chosen expressive forms, I hope to say something substantive about myself and about the overall human experience that other people can identify with, connect to and understand.

I tapped into my affinity for the written word first. I picked up my writing pen at the tender age of 13 and felt a sense of familiarity, personal agency and freedom that I never thought possible. I had no language for this new force in my life, but I knew that through writing I could imagine for myself, create for myself-even-a world of original colors, images, textures, tastes and sounds that were heretofore absent in my lived reality. Nothing in my life up until that age pointed in the direction of The Arts as an avocation or passion for me. My aspirations had always been a bit more grounded and, dare I say, humble. I grew up in the 70s in a small town in New Jersey. I spent my formative years immersed in sports. Continuing in that tradition, I played basketball in high school and did the same as an undergraduate for Rutgers University-Camden. I moved to Philadelphia, PA in 1996 to pursue graduate work in social work at Temple University. Upon receiving my masters degree in 1998, I pursued a professional career as an advocate for adults and children with familial, social, mental and emotional challenges. My natural impulse has always been to reach out to, to support and to advocate for the voiceless. Seeing suffering, powerlessness and defeat up close like that day in and day out was a challenge, but I also found many examples of the resilience of the human spirit and I saw moments of great joy even in the face of incredible heartbreak. Poetry was then and remains now a wonderful outlet for exploring that double-sided, paradoxical nature of life. It became a vehicle through which I could see and accept myself and the world around me as being multifaceted and innately complex.

Moving back to Philadelphia after some time away, I committed myself to exploring my artistry fully. I realize and accepted the connection between self-expression and living life holistically, meaning, embracing all facets of my personhood. I thought it important, also, to delineate for myself a unique poetic voice: one that was protean and, thus, could change as I changed and could become more expansive as I developed as a human being and as an artist. Spoken Word, as a poetic style, allows for such growth and fluidity. In an effort to hone that specific attribute of my poetic voice, I performed at a number of open mic venues throughout the city, such as The October Gallery and Warm Daddys. I was a featured poet at the 2004 Philly Fringe Festival and at the 2005 Philly Black Womens Arts Festival. In late 2005 and in 2006, I took to the road performing as featured poet at number of events throughout the country. I self-published my first book of haikus, Liquid Verbs, in November 2005. My second book of poetry, Reservoir in My Mouth, is scheduled for a December 2006 release.

Continuing to explore other extensions of my inner voice and looking for new outlets of self-expression, I was blessed to realize a gift for painting abstract art in 2003. Painting, for me, is a way to celebrate and to grapple with lifes complexity, a way to balance stillness & movement, assonance & dissonance, structure & formlessness and singularity & multiplicity. I was able to actualize two solo shows in March of 2005 at Freedom Theater and May of 2005 at AVHQ, respectively, where I displayed 20 original pieces at each venue. I also mounted an audio-visual intensive, multi-media display of artwork, poetry and spoken word in December 2005. Whether through written poetry, spoken word or painting, I am preoccupied with constantly framing and re-framing the world and my place in it. This very personal journey continues to press me forward.
I received a number of awards during my basketball career at Rutger (Camden) University during 1991-1995- player of the year, leading scorer, & leading rebounder.
