quotes call sunglasses in the rain. The 2nd book will be out in December .
How did you get started with your other projects?
Well I got started in comedy because people kept calling me a comedian. So I gave it a shot. The speaking came by a Coach T asking me to talk to some kids while I was in college and I loved it so I kept it up and more people came my way. The spoken word came because I enjoy writing poetry and I love hitting the stage so that was a no brainer.

How do you think the arts can help the youth of today if it was in schools like it was back in the day?
It would help them in so many ways. Spoken words is a great way to express yourself without being told how to do so. The kids today in many case are not given the chances to be creative like we was. Now a days everything is time and on paper for the kids and the video games and phones.
