Performance poetry has always been a passion of mine, and provides the basis of all of my performance art work. I retired as the reigning Taos Poetry Circus Heavyweight Champion, after back-to-back wins in 2002/03. I also created “Lush Lola, Mistress of Ceremonies” for an erotic poetry event organized by LeVan D. Hawkins, was one of three poets in Peter J. Harris’ Inspiration House Choir at California Plaza’s Grand Performances Series, premiered “Quinny,” an audience interactive animated film about a woman with Alzheimer’s, at the Autry Museum and was the emcee poet for “48 Hours to Action,” the World AIDS Day Event at UCLA World Arts & Culture.
