Uncontrolled Experiments In Freedom, 2008 - WriteBloody



For the last four years I have been reading my poetry to audiences in living rooms, on sidewalks, in dorm rooms, abandoned buildings, at campfires, in poetry slams, in bars, in hotel rooms, in opera houses, in art galleries, and anywhere else they will let me. Part writer, part performance artist, I am constantly attempting the impossible, to generate an authentic moment of communication between me and an audience. Because my writing is relentlessly personal, people hear the honesty in my performance and respond with a powerful amount of trust. I am in the practice of summoning the unique. This kind of kinetic storytelling is perhaps the oldest art form in the world. When people emerge after I've immersed them in my voice, they walk away delighted, excited, thoughtful, and revived.

I mainly perform and operate in and around the Boston/New England Area, but I have also crossed the country twice touring. I usually perform at two main kinds of shows; either as the feature at a local poetry slam, or as an opening/in-between act at musical concert. I have performed with such poets & bands as:

Anis Mojgani, Danny Sherrard, Manners, Derrick Brown, the Needy Visions, Shira Erlichman, Lindsay Clark, Many Mansions and Buddy Wakefield
