Empower Ourselves: Now booking workshops for your school or organization

I wrote this poem while sitting in a cubicle job that was killing my creative spirit. Through that experience, I became committed to focusing on my art as full time employment. Check out the video and book me for your classroom. I have worked for over 10 years as a teaching artist and program coordinator for Chicago Public Schools. I have extensive experience in arts integration, literacy, poetry, theater and social justice. Email me at for rates and dates for your unique and collaborative workshops that will awaken your students to the beauty of words and their own creative power.

Artist Statement

I create art for the ones who lost their voice a long time ago. I believe that impromptu spectacles can bring awareness to social justice issues that paralyze our communities. Lady Terror examines the relationship between public space and performance space and also explores ranting as a medium to address social issues and as a tool to empower communities. My art is local and neighborhood specific in its execution but global in its ideas around poverty, injustice and violence.
