This past weekend I spent time 5 days in Boulder covering the 2011 USA Ultimate College Championships for Skyd Magazine. In addition to producing a ton a videos, liveblog, webcast, tons of recaps, interviews and photos with an excellent team for Skyd, I worked with CBS Sports and USA Ultimate to do voice over and talent work for a few daily recaps.
I recently read a short poem at whizARTbang called “Pilot, What’s the Destination.” It’s about airports.
I intend to reveal a brand new poem, never before heard or seen. Here’s a sneak peak to tickle your poetic desires:
When the words Assisted Living and Paradise
Have become synonymous
Generations X, Y and Z will wonder
Where we went wrong raising the youth of tomorrow
Sometimes, I wonder too
On Nov. 17th at 7pm, come check out my poem and a ton of other awesome local performers, along with the projection of some stunning art in the background.
Back on the 3rd of July, I performed some poetry at a new event in Seattle called whizARTbang. I performed three poems, one of which has not been on video before.
Footage of the full event:
On February 19th, 2010, I connected to my old roots as a high school stand-up comedian and performed in front of a college audience of hundreds…well maybe a hundred students at, my alma mater, the University of Puget Sound. After planning and coming up with jokes up until the night before, I found I had way too much material and cut my work into a 20 minute set. I’ll say this: this definitely has its moments, and failures. Regardless, it was fun to get up on stage and mess around.
The event was put on by my friend Rollie Williams of Revolver Comedy.
Recently I performed in Poetry in the 253, an all-star poetry event in Tacoma, WA celebrating the announcing of the city’s new Poet Laureate Tammy Robacker. I performed four pieces, three of which with some awesome accompaniment. Below you’ll find the vids from the show. You can view the full show including all of the performers @ The Melon.

Thanks to Antonio Edwards for putting on such a great event and to all of my collaborators for their fantastic work.
A few months ago, I was invited to present at the 3rd Annual Pecha Kucha Tacoma. Pecha Kucha is a collaborative event in which presenters are asked to compile 20 slides and present for 20 seconds per slide. The theme of this event was “Work & Play.” Below is my presentation from the event in which I discuss my jobs, side-projects and meshing the worlds of work and play.
