I perform poetry at live events, school events, and in church or spiritual services. My poems are written and performed to fit any occasion. I am available for any function that needs poetry and music to make the crowd move or create an entertaining and energetic atmosphere. I can perform with any style of music behind me if that is what you have in mind. I am good to go for poetry events, readings, or even writing a unique or special poem for your dog, your cat, your mother, or your best friend.
