I am currently the Artistic Director, Co-Slammaster, and number one fan for SlamCharlotte, one of the slam teams in Charlotte NC.
I donít consider myself to be poet but I am a lover of poetry, good people, warm spirits and rain showers. I find solace in volunteering and helping others.
My love affair with PSi started in 2004 at the first iWPS in Greenville SC. Since then, I have volunteered at a PSi event every year.
I served as co-organizer for iWPS 2006, 2008, 2010 and currently for NPS 2012. I served as co-organizer for the Southern Fried Regional Poetry Slam in 2005 and I currently serve as the Assistant-Tournament Director.
I became a member of the EC in 2006 as the iWPS host city coordinator. I served for a year and was re-elected as a trustee at the end of 2007 and have served on the EC since then. I am currently the Treasurer and a member of the PSi Finance Committee.
I have enjoyed my tenure on the EC and feel that I have helped create policies and procedures that further serve to strengthen the organization. I am excited about the work the EC past/present have put in place and would love to help further develop the mission of the organization.
If it is the will of the Slammasters, I would love to continue serving PSi and the poetry community through my service on the Executive Council.
